President Trump Appoints A.J. ‘Bud’ Hicks to Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Board, May 17, 1981

STATELINE — U.S. President Donald Trump has appointed A.J. “Bud” Hicks to the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Governing Board. Hicks, a resident of Reno since 1957, will assume the non-voting, presidential-appointee seat on the Governing Board held by Tim Carlson since 2012.

“My six years on the board has been very rewarding, for me as well as the agency,” Carlson said. “Over that period, the staff, management, and the board have worked tirelessly to bring about the positive changes that are reflective in the agency’s partnerships. As I see it, it has been the most productive period the agency has experienced, which I was proud to be a part of.”

“I am pleased that President Trump appointed Bud Hicks to the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency Governing Board,” Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval said. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mr. Hicks in a number of capacities, but his love and knowledge of Lake Tahoe makes him a perfect member of the Governing Board and I was pleased to recommend him to the President for this important appointment.”
