Steve Sisolak was sworn in to office on Monday. 

Sisolak defeated Republican Attorney General Adam Laxalt, the grandson of former Gov. Paul Laxalt, in November. He'll become the state's first Democratic governor in about two decades and the state's 30th governor.

Sisolak has spent a decade on the Clark County Commission, which oversees the Las Vegas Strip and surrounding communities.

The new governor and first lady Kathy Sisolak will also hold a public reception Monday afternoon at the Nevada State Library and Archives and a private dinner with elected officials, former governors and other guests at the governor's mansion Monday night.

Sisolak will deliver his inaugural address and constitutional officers and Nevada State Supreme Court justices will be sworn in as well.

A public reception will begin at 1 p.m. at the Nevada State Library and Archives.

The Nevada Department of Public Safety says there will be some streets closures for the event. On Friday evening (January 4), 'no parking' cones will be posted on Musser Street.

Starting on Monday, January 7 at 5:30 a.m., closures will begin on:

  • Carson St. between 5th St. & Musser St.
  • 5th St. between Carson St. & Stewart St.
  • Musser St. between Carson St. & Stewart St.
  • King. St. between Stewart St. & Valley St.

The Nevada Department of Public Safety says the streets will reopen after the event.
