Nancy Black

Nancy Black has been appointed to fill the vacant county commission seat in Mineral County.

Nancy Black, former Mineral County Commissioner, has been appointed to fill the position that was left vacant after the passing of Clifford Cichowlaz on March 18.

Black is a former two-term commissioner who ran against Cichowlaz in 2012 in a positive campaign that ended with the late commissioner thanking Black for her duties to the county after the primary election, which he won.

Besides being a former commissioner, Black is familiar with the operations of county government, having retired from the Mineral County Recorder/Auditor office with 20 years of service.

Her appointment was effective on April 12 by Governor Brian Sandoval. She attended her first meeting on April 20.

Black resides in Hawthorne, a town she shares with her family and friends.
