Another top staffer leaves Nevada governor’s office

Gov. Brian Sandoval's general counsel and policy director Lucas Foletta resigned today. He is the latest in a string of top staff departures from Sandoval's office.

In a terse statement announcing Foletta's abrupt resignation, Sandoval wished Foletta "the very best."

“I thank Lucas for his diligent service to my office and our state,” Sandoval said.

Foletta exits the governor's office two weeks after Sandoval requested the resignation of his state education superintendent James Gutherie.

Last year, Sandoval lost top advisers Heidi Gansert, his chief of staff; and policy director Dale Erquiaga.

A replacement for Foletta has not yet been named.
