New State Officials

While most Democratic candidates relative to Lake Tahoe lost their congressional or assembly races, I was somewhat consoled by the fact that Democrats managed to win the majority of state offices both in California and in Nevada.

This became quite apparent to me while walking the halls of the State Capitol of Nevada in Carson City a couple of weeks ago. There on the ground floor were two office doors engraved with the names of State Treasurer Kate Marshall and State Controller Kim Wallin.

Also taking office in January were Secretary of State Ross Miller and Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto.

In California, all political state offices except for the Governor and the Insurance Commissioner are now in the hands of Democrats. The newly sworn in officials are: Attorney General Jerry Brown, Secretary of State Debra Bowen, State Treasurer Bill Lockyer, State Controller John Chiang and Lt. Governor John Garamendi.

I've included links to their website in the sidebar.

More on my three weeks in California and Nevada in the coming days!
