Commissioner Mary Beth Scow announced her resignation from the Clark County Commission in order to spend more time with her family.

“Serving in this position and representing the citizens of Clark County Commission District G has been a tremendous honor and one I have thoroughly enjoyed," she told the commission Tuesday. "I’ve especially appreciated my association with dedicated colleagues with whom I’ve served on various boards and commissions. I’m grateful to the amazing staff in all departments and I sincerely wish each of you well in your future endeavors.”

Her resignation is effective June 30.
Scow was first elected to represent Commission District G in November 2010 and was reelected in 2014. Commission District G includes part of the Las Vegas Strip, McCarran International Airport, UNLV, much of the city of Henderson and Boulder City.
Prior to joining the County Commission, Scow served three terms as a member of the Board of Trustees for the Clark County School District. Upon completion of her board service there, she received the CCSD Excellence in Education Hall of Fame award.
Scow and her husband, Steven, have nine children, all of whom attended Clark County School District schools, and 37 grandchildren.
Under Nevada law, the governor will appoint Commissioner Scow’s replacement. The appointee must belong to the same political party as the outgoing commissioner. Scow is a Democrat.
