Clark, Lincoln and Nye county commissioners today settled their option of Republican Gregory Hafen II to join the Assembly and change late whorehouse owner Dennis Hof, who passed away before last month’s election however still won the District 36 seat.
Most of the Assembly district remains in Nye County, which carried the greatest weight in today’s vote per state law. The appointee had to be the very same party affiliation as Hof, a Republican.
“I am deeply honored to get the appointment to the Assembly District 36 seat from Nye, Clark and Lincoln County,” Hafen said in a declaration. “I am grateful for the votes of all three county commissions and all of the support I have gotten from the neighborhood, friends and family. I look forward to the difficulties ahead and plan to strive on behalf of the constituents of District 36 and Nevada.”
Hafen is the general manager of the Pahrump Energy Business Inc. His grandpa M. Kent “Tim” Hafen had held the exact same Assembly seat after being elected in 1966, according to the Nevada GOP.
The Legislature is will assemble in February with a Democratic bulk in both chambers.
