Top Gibbons staffer files to run for elected office

Lynn Hettrick, deputy chief of staff to Gov. Jim Gibbons and a former assemblyman, has filed to run for Douglas County clerk-treasurer.

Hettrick, 66, said he will stay on with Gibbons through December. If he wins he will take over the clerk-treasurer job in January. He has been deputy chief of staff for nine months.

There are two other Republicans in the race, including incumbent Ted Thran who was appointed in 2008.

Hettrick served in the Assembly from 1993 to 2006 and was co-speaker of the House in 1995.

He said he wants to stay in the governor's office to start preparing the policies and budget for the 2011 Legislature.
