Letter to Governor Sandoval on Parole Board Composition

Attached and below is a copy of the letter NV-CURE sent to Governor Sandoval, with a copy to Attorney General Masto, regarding the composition of the Board of Parole Commissioners.

 
Please review the below letter and, should you deem it appropriate, write a letter, e-mail, or telephone Governor Sandoval or Senator Segerblom regarding the limitation imposed by NRS 213.108(6) on the number of former prison people that may be Members of the Parole Board and request that Chairman Bisbee and one other former prison person be removed from the Parole Board.

Thank you for your help in this matter.

Governor Sandoval:

NV-CURE is writing to bring to your attention an apparent violation of the provision of NRS 213.108(6), which prohibits more than two members of the Board of Parole Commissioners (Parole Board) from the field of prisons (NRS 213.108(5)(a)(1).

The current composition of the Parole Board consists of at least three, and possibly four, members from the field of prisons. Those members are: Connie Bisbee; Tony Corda; Adam Endel; and, possibly, Eddie Gray. According to their biographies on the Parole Board website, each of these members have a background in the field of prisons. One, or possibly two, of the referenced members should be removed from the Parole Board to comply with the provisions of NRS 213.108(6).

NV-CURE suggest that one of the members of the Parole Board to be removed be Connie Bisbee, as she is the Chairperson of the Parole Board and she is responsible for Parole Board compliance with the laws of the State of Nevada relating to the Parole Board.

Please advise NV-CURE of your decision in this matter.  Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
