Meet Your New Commissioner-Lynette Boggs McDonald
On Tuesday, April 20, Lynette Boggs McDonald was sworn in as the new county commissioner for District F.
Commissioner Boggs McDonald comes to Clark County from the city of Las Vegas, where she was the first woman to lead a City Council ward in the history of that city. She was appointed to serve the city's Ward 2 on June 28, 1999. On April 3, 2001, she was elected outright in the Ward 2 primary election, receiving 70 percent of the vote.
Appointed by Gov. Kenny Guinn after Mark James vacated the seat on April 2 to spend more time with his family and law practice, Boggs McDonald said she’s honored by the appointment and excited to get started.
“I’m really looking forward to serving the constituents of District F,” said Commissioner Boggs McDonald. “With the tremendous amount of growth anticipated in the southwest part of the valley, it’s important to me to keep the residents of District F informed and involved. I look forward to working with both the urban and rural Town Advisory Boards on development and community issues in District F. I will reach out to people through a number of venues including the upcoming land use planning meetings for Enterprise and Spring Valley.”
“This year’s opening of the new Spring Valley High School and the Desert Breeze Community Center expansion are, without a doubt, significant additions to District F,” said Commissioner Boggs McDonald. “We have a great deal of work ahead of us as the valley continues to experience such unprecedented growth. I’m ready to hit the ground running!”
As a wife, and the proud mother of one child (and another on the way), Boggs McDonald has dedicated her life to public service and the community. From 1994 to 1997, she served as assistant city manager for the city of Las Vegas, which gives her a unique perspective as a former staff member and an elected official.
Boggs McDonald is a member of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Fiscal Affairs Committee, Southern Nevada Debt Management Commission and Regional Jail Commission. She also was immediate past president of the Nevada League of Cities and Municipalities and a member of the Community and Economic Development Policy Committee for the National League of Cities.
District F spans a combination of rural and urban areas. The urban boundaries include Tenaya Way to Rancho Dr. and Charleston Blvd. to Lake Mead Blvd.; Decatur Blvd. to Rancho Dr. and Charleston Blvd. to Tropicana Ave.; and the 215 Beltway from Gomer Rd. to Durango Dr. Within these boundaries are the towns of Spring Valley and Enterprise. The rural area of District F includes Blue Diamond, Mountain Springs, Sloan, Goodsprings, Jean, Sandy Valley and Primm.
