Goodbye to a Governor

Earlier today, Governor Kenny Guinn passed away unexpectedly.  Governor Guinn served from 1999-2006.  I first met him as a low-level Deputy Attorney General, and spoke to him occasionally while working for his successor, Governor Jim Gibbons.  Governor Guinn always went out of his way to offer a kind and supportive word.  His dedication to Nevada resonated in everything he did.  He was one of those rare leaders who could energize everyone he worked with.  I’ll never forget him telling me how proud I should be of my public service.  Today is a sad day for Nevada, but the example Governor Guinn set will endure.
