  • New Mayor, Council Members Take Oath of Office
    BOULDER CITY – Tuesday night during a special meeting of City Council, dozens of
    people packed City Hall to see new Boulder City Mayor Joe Hardy accept the Oath of
    Office from his son, Judge Joe Hardy. New Council Members Steve Walton and Cokie
    Booth accepted their Oaths of Office from City Clerk Tami McKay. Mayor Hardy
    previously served as a Boulder City Council Member from 1999-2002, and as a Nevada
    State Assemblyman and Senator. Both Council Members Walton and Booth served on
    the Boulder City Planning Commission in recent years.
    The first order of business was to appoint Council Members to local, regional and State
    Boards and Committees. “I’ve had several iterations on how to do this in such a way
    that we maximize the good influence in the greater Las Vegas and Boulder City Area,”
    said Mayor Hardy. “I realize that we need every single person on the Council
    participating, doing, and not only in the same boat but rowing in the same direction.”
    The Council voted to appoint Mayor Hardy (who will be retiring at the end of the year
    from his role as Associate Dean of Clinical Education at Touro University Nevada’s
    College of Osteopathic Medicine, but will remain there in an Adjunct capacity) to serve
    on the Southern Nevada Health District Board. He will also serve on the Civilian Military
    Council, the Regional Transportation Commission/Regional Flood Control District
    Boards, and the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance.
    Council voted unanimously to appoint Council Member Sherri Jorgensen as Mayor pro
    tempore; the role performs the duties of the Mayor during the absence or disability of
    the Mayor. She will continue her roles on the Boulder City Audit Review Committee and
    Boulder City Community Education Advisory Board, the Clark County School Oversight
    Panel for School Facilities and joins the Clark County Debt Management Commission.
    Incumbent Council Member and Boulder City business owner Matt Fox was selected to
    serve on the Nevada League of Cities Board of Directors and the Workforce Connections
    Local Elected Officials (LEO) Consortium Committee.
    Council Member Steve Walton, a retired Division Fire Chief (Henderson) and one-time
    interim Fire Chief (Boulder City), will serve on the board of the Southern Nevada Water
    Authority, the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Authority (LVCVA), and as Nevada
    League of Cities Legislative Committee Alternate.
    Council Member Cokie Booth, who is a business owner in Boulder City, was selected to
    serve alongside Mayor pro tem Jorgensen on the Audit Review Committee, on the
    Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition and on the Nevada Public Agency
    Insurance Pool Board of Directors/Public Compensation Trust (known as POOL/PACT).
