Letter to Governor Sandoval about investigating if appointment of Nevada Parole Board Commissioner Bisbee violates NRS 213.108(6)
Attached please find a copy of my communications with Governor Sandoval regarding the composition of the NV Board of Parole Commissioners in violation of the provisions of NRS 213.108(6) for your review and investigation:
One of our Members contacted the Governor's Office regarding this matter and was advised that Commissioner Bisbee is "classified" as having a P&P background - not a prison background.
On the Parole Board website, Commissioner Bisbee information indicates she was employed by the NV Department of Corrections, with no reference as to having worked for P&P. If her background was P&P, a person would think it would be listed with the information on her background.
It appears to me, and others, that Commissioner Bisbee is "classified" as having a background in P&P to evade the requirements of NRS 213.108(6). To us, it is a clear violation of the legislatively intended statute.
Would you please initiate an investigation into this matter and insure that corrective action, if necessary, is taken and a report on the results of your investigation is published for the people of the community to review.
Please note Governor Sandoval and Attorney General Cortez Masto do not provide e-mail addresses on their websites - which is why those offices have not been copied with this e-mail.
Thank you very much for your assistance in this matter.
