Standing between the American flag and the Nevada state flag with hands on their hearts, Clark County commissioners Mary Beth Scow, Susan Brager and Chris Giunchigliani took their oaths of office Monday morning.
Scow, the group’s newest member, took photos after the ceremony with her family and other officials, including three of her grandchildren. In November, Scow defeated Republican Doug Bell, a former county employee, for the position.
“I appreciate the faith of the voters and I have a great desire to work hard and to serve the community,” she said.
Giunchigliani and Brager both won re-election of their districts in November.
The commission selected Susan Brager to be its next chairwoman Monday morning.
Brager will follow former chairman and gubernatorial candidate Rory Reid, who lost to Brian Sandoval in November.
Brager, a Democrat, was re-elected to a second term in November, defeating independent candidate Jeff Durbin and Republican Mitchell Tracy. Brager previously served as vice chairwoman of the commission.
Brager has lived in Clark County for 47 years. She has served on the Clark County School District Board, held many positions within the school district and was a real estate agent for 20 years.
During the same vote, the commission selected Steve Sisolak to be its vice chairman. Sisolak and Brager nominated each other for their new positions, and both were unanimously accepted.
