Sandoval announces staff changes

GOVERNOR’S OFFICE NEWS RELEASE

CARSON CITY — Governor Brian Sandoval today announced changes to his staff in his Carson City Office.

 

Tyler Klimas, who has served as an agency liaison and in constituent services with Sandoval’s office, has been named Manager of Intergovernmental Affairs. He will coordinate legislative issues, manage cabinet communications and meetings and assist with boards and commission appointments.  Before joining the Governor’s Office, Klimas worked on the Governor’s campaign.  He holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from UNLV.

 

“Tyler will be a central clearinghouse for intergovernmental operations within my office.  He has been with us from the start and knows how this office must coordinate with state agencies and the other branches of government,” Sandoval said.

 

Lucas Foletta, who has served as the Governor’s General Counsel, has been named Policy Director and General Counsel. In his new position, Foletta will oversee the work of agency liaisons and coordinate the Governor’s policy agenda.  Foletta will retain his general counsel duties. As a former Assistant United States Attorney for the district of Nevada, Foletta has prosecuted mortgage fraud and identity theft matters on behalf of the U.S. Government. A graduate of Wake Forest University School of Law, Foletta was also a former law clerk to then-Federal Judge Brian Sandoval.

 

“Lucas has been a distinguished member of my staff since day one and has an intimate understanding of how policy affects the everyday lives of Nevadans,” Governor Sandoval said.  “I look forward to his continued counsel on a wide range of issues.”

 

Senior Advisor to the Governor Dale Erquiaga will remain on staff until early July. He intends to relocate to Arizona to be near his children.

 

“Dale has been a trusted confidant and invaluable member of my team from the very beginning,” Sandoval said.  “As a father myself, I understand the difficulties of being away from your children.  I will miss Dale’s insight, experience and wisdom and I thank him for his service to my office and to the people of the State of Nevada.  I wish him the very best as he begins the next chapter of his life.”
