Celebrating 75 Years of Serving Nevada’s Legal, Business, Government, and Civic Communities

Gubernatorial Appointee to the State Public Works Board

McDonald Carano congratulates Phil Mannelly on his appointment to the Public Works Board for the State of Nevada. Governor Steve Sisolak announced Phil’s appointment on Dec. 23 for the term beginning Dec. 1, 2022. The State Public Works Board includes the Director of the Department of Administration and six appointed Members. Four Members are appointed by the Governor, one by the Senate Majority Leader and one by the Assembly Speaker. The Board recommends to the Governor the priority for construction of Nevada’s capital improvement projects and adopts regulations and presides over appeals regarding contractor qualifications and contract disputes.

Phil also shares his expertise through annual updates to the Nevada section of the “Construction Laws and Customs” treatise published by Thomson Reuters. Phil is recognized in Nevada Business Magazine’s 2022 list of “Top Ranked Attorneys” and “Best Up & Coming Attorneys” and he received “1st Place” recognition in the “Up & Coming Business Person” category in Northern Nevada Business Weekly’s Best In Business 2022 awards.

We congratulate Phil on his appointment and thank him for his service to our State and leadership in Nevada’s construction industry.
