|The Governor of the western state of Nevada, Jim Gibbons, has announced the appointment of Tony Alamo to the state’s Gaming Commission, replacing Ray Rawson who left after three years of service.|
The 43-year-old physician previously served on the Nevada State Athletic Commission for six years and is the son of a former executive who oversaw boxing promotions for the Mandalay Bay resort on the Las Vegas Strip.
“The Nevada Gaming Commission plays such a vital role in our largest industry,” Governor Gibbons told the Las Vegas Sun newspaper.
“I am pleased Alamo has accepted the position and I am certain Nevada will benefit from his business experience and knowledge.”
The Nevada Gaming Commission works in conjunction with the State Gaming Control Board to regulate the gaming industry in the state and is the ultimate authority on licensing matters.
“I am filled with pride to once again serve the state and I am pleased that Governor Gibbons possesses the confidence in my ability to contribute to the Nevada Gaming Commission,” said Alamo.
“I will work hard to succeed and serve the people of Nevada.”
