Nevada Budget Director Resigns to Take New Job

Posted: Updated:

Nevada Budget Director Jeff Mohlenkamp is resigning from Gov. Brian Sandoval's administration to take a job out of state.
 
His resignation announced Friday is effective April 7.
 
Mohlenkamp has worked for the state for 27 years, beginning with the Gaming Control Board in the late 1980s. He was the chief financial officer for the Department of Corrections when Sandoval named him to his cabinet in 2011, putting him in charge of Nevada's then $6.2 billion budget.
 
Earlier this month Mohlenkamp presided over a "budget kickoff" event, where he told agency heads the state's economy is improving and they wouldn't be asked to slash budgets in the next two-year funding cycle.
 
Sandoval thanked Mohlenkamp for his service and says a new director of administration would be named soon. "I would like to thank Jeff for his service to the state of Nevada," said Governor Brian Sandoval. "His diligence and unwavering commitment throughout the last budget cycle was a benefit to the entire state. I wish him the very best in his next endeavor."   

"I thank Governor Sandoval for the opportunity to serve the state in the position of Director of Administration," Mohlenkamp said. "I believe we have accomplished many outstanding things and the state is clearly on a strong path. I am proud to have played a role in this effort."
