Former State Assemblywoman Michele Fiore has been selected to fill the vacant Pahrump Justice of the Peace seat for Department B.
The Board of County Commission voted 5-0 late Tuesday, January 20th for her appointment, which expires in January 2025. She fills the vacancy caused by the passing of Justice of the Peace Kent Jasperson in August, who had served since 2007.
She was chosen out of 18 applicants after Commissioner Leo Blundo and former Inyo County Sheriff William Lutze withdrew prior to the meeting. Fiore was most recently a Las Vegas City Councilwoman and the Republican nominee for State Treasurer race.
Fiore was sworn in Wednesday and began her first day.
