Nevada Gaming Control Board Reappoints Two

With contracts set to expire at the end of January, the Gaming Control Board renewed the contracts for Chairman A.G. Burnett (l.) and board member Shawn Reid for four additional years. Both have been with the board since 2011.

Gaming Control Board Chairman A.G. Burnett and Member Shawn Reid were both inked to new four-year terms last week by Governor Brian Sandoval. Burnett has been at the top of the regulatory panel since 2012, and both he and Reid joined the Control Board in 2011.

Prior to the Control Board, Reid was chief of the Control Board’s Investigations Division before being elected to the three-person panel. In 1990, Reid was brought in as an agent. Burnett was previously deputy chief of the agency’s corporate securities division. He was an associate in a Reno law firm.

“I am proud to continue serving as chairman of the Gaming Control Board,” Burnett said. “I look forward to continuing the board’s work as we regulate Nevada’s most important industry.” Control Board members earn $135,741 annually, and the chairman earns $145,986.
