Clard, two other Com­mis­sions Ap­point HASEN to fill HOS ’s seat

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - NEVADA - By Shea John­son Las Ve­gas Re­view-jour­nal

Gre­gory Hafen II, the gen­eral man­ager of Pahrump Util­ity Co.

Inc., was ap­pointed to fill the va­cant Assem­bly Dis­trict 36 seat on Fri­day in a joint meet­ing of three county com­mis­sions, Nye County spokesman Arnold Knightly said.

Hafen, who was sep­a­rately nom­i­nated this week by each county com­mis­sion, will as­sume the seat won posthu­mously last month by brothel owner Den­nis Hof.

The dis­trict spans Clark, Nye and Lin­coln coun­ties, but the ma­jor­ity of precincts fall in Nye.

The de­ci­sion fol­lows a Nye County res­i­dent’s un­suc­cess­ful ef­fort to seek a pre­lim­i­nary in­junc­tion to push the ap­point­ment un­til next month, when two new Nye County com­mis­sion­ers are sworn in. A hear­ing in the mat­ter is sched­uled Dec. 19, but it is un­clear what ju­di­cial re­lief re­mains.

A sim­i­lar com­plaint was filed in Clark County Dis­trict Court.

Mean­while, two other va­cant Assem­bly seats also need to be filled.

For­mer Dis­trict 10 Assem­bly­man Chris Brooks was ap­pointed by the Clark County Com­mis­sion on Tues­day to the state Se­nate 3 seat va­cated when Tick Segerblom was elected to the com­mis­sion last month.

Olivia Diaz, who was elected last month, re­signed from the Assem­bly Dis­trict 11 seat Mon­day be­cause she plans to run for Las Ve­gas City Coun­cil next year.

Clark County is ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions through noon Mon­day to fill the seats and will make ap­point­ments at a fu­ture meet­ing.
