Governor’s Office Releases Salary List
In an apparent move to increase the transparency of his administration, Gov. Brian Sandoval released today the annual salaries of his staff. His 17 staff positions, one of which is vacant, consume about $1 million of the governor’s executive budget.
His highest paid employee, Chief of Staff Heidi Gansert, will earn $124,988 this year. The lowest paid, Celia Magana, is an administrative assistant in Las Vegas earning $29,984.
Sandoval himself earns $141,000 per year, equivalent to what former Gov. Jim Gibbons earned this past year, since he earlier said he would forgo an $8,500 pay raise.
As Cy Ryan reported in the Las Vegas Sun, State Controller Kim Wallin and Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto elected to keep the 6 percent raise while still taking the 4.6 percent pay reduction.
