Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak has appointed retired Clark County Judge Jennifer Togliatti and former State Senator Ben Kieckhefer to the Nevada Gaming Commission. Togliatti will serve as chair – and will be the first female to serve as the chair.

Togliatti has served the State of Nevada in the state judiciary for more than 25 years and has significant legal, administrative and legislative experience. She has experience related to all aspects of litigation, criminal and civil, including complex business disputes.

Kieckhefer has spent the last decade serving in the Nevada State Senate, where he has spent time working on legislation on complex and contentious issues. He works as the Director of Client Relations at McDonald Carano.

“Both Judge Togliatti and Senator Kieckhefer are highly qualified appointments to these positions, and I am glad to have them continue their service to the Silver State by serving on the Nevada Gaming Commission. This commission is the gold standard of gaming regulation, and these appointments will continue to honor that,” Gov. Sisolak said.
