LOS ANGELES — Term limits are forcing an election-year shuffle in Nevada's finance positions.
Termed-out Treasurer Kate Marshall filed papers March 5 to run for Secretary of State in November.
Marshall, a Democrat, is running for the position "to maintain the integrity and accessibility of our voting system," according to her website.
Dan Swartz, a Republican businessman, and State Controller Kim Wallin, a Democrat, both filed papers to run for treasurer last week.
Swartz is the founder, president and chief executive officer of Qiosk.com, which markets and delivers electronic issues of printed magazines to readers. He holds law and business degrees. He formerly served as the CEO at AVCJ Group, Ltd., which publishes the Asian Venture Capital Journal and organizes the Global Asian Private Equity and Venture Forum. He is the author of two books, The Future of Finance: How Private Equity and Venture Capital Will Shape the Global Economy and Principles of the American Republic.
Wallin, a Democrat, is a certified public accountant and certified management accountant. She serves as president of the National Association of State Controllers and is a member of several professional associations including the American Institute of CPAs and the National Association of State Auditors, Comptrollers and Treasurers.
She received the 2013 NASAT President's award for her work in improving disclosure of financial information for investors who invest in municipal bonds. State Assemblymember Andrew Martin, a Democrat, and Republicans Cort Arlint, Barry Herr and Ron Knecht are running to replace the termed-out Wallin as controller.
The Republican governor, Brian Sandoval, is expected to breeze to re-election.
