Governor Sandoval Names Julia Teska State Budget Director

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Brian Sandoval has named a veteran in state finance as his new budget chief and director of the Department of Administration.
 
Julia Teska will replace Jeff Mohlenkamp who is retiring April 4 after nearly three decades in state government service.
 
Sandoval announced the cabinet appointment Tuesday.
 
Teska is currently deputy superintendent at the Nevada Department of Education and has more than 20 years of government finance experience at the state and local levels.
 
Sandoval says her intimate knowledge of the state budget and experience in education and human services will be of great value to the state.
 
The governor's office is already gathering input from state agencies as it begins preparing a two-year budget proposal that will be presented to the 2015 Legislature.

"Julia has an intimate knowledge of the state budget and brings with her a wealth of experience in government finance," said Governor Brian Sandoval. "Her extensive work in education and health and human services will be of great value to the state of Nevada. I am pleased Julia has accepted this position and look forward to working with her as we build the next state budget."

"I am honored and humbled to be given the chance to continue to serve the citizens of Nevada in this new role," said Julia Teska. "The Governor's priorities of improving education and mental health services for our citizens have long been priorities in my career. I look forward to working with the Governor and his administration to help move Nevada forward."
