Townsend appointed to Nevada Gaming Commission

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) – A veteran state legislator has been appointed to the Nevada Gaming Commission.

Gov. Jim Gibbons announced the appointment Wednesday of Sen. Randolph Townsend to the five-member board that gives final approval to gambling licensing and regulatory matters.

A Reno Republican, Townsend has served in the Senate since 1983. He is barred by term limits from seeking re-election this year.

He was chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce and Labor and served on the government affairs and taxation committees.

Townsend’s appointment will become official following his resignation from the Senate, expected before the end of the week.

He replaces Radha Chanderraj, whose term expires this month.
