Harry “Bus” Scharmann was sworn in today as Churchill County Commissioner, District 3. Scharmann replaces Dr. Greg Koenig, who was elected to the State Assembly, District 38. Scharmann will serve out the remaining two years of Koenig’s term on the county commission.
Gov. Steve Sisolak appointed Scharmann this week based on recommendations from the Churchill County Republican Party Central Committee.
Scharmann previously served on the County Commission for eight years. He retired as dean of Western Nevada College’s Fallon campus in 2011 before serving as interim superintendent of the Churchill County School district for a year. He has a long history of serving on boards and commissions.
His first County Commission meeting will be December 1.
