Nevada Lt. Governor Kate Marshall will oversee economic and workforce development as well as tourism for the state. The former state treasurer hosted a retreat in Elko during the 35th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering to allow department staff to experience one of Nevada’s premier tourism events. Marshall discussed several topics on our radio show,”Elko, Live!” in a recorded conversation that aired February 7th. From workforce development and training through Great Basin College to creation of a Small Business Support Center as supported by Governor Steve Sisolak, Marshall said rural Nevada counties have an important role in the health of the economy and tourism in the state.
