RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Washoe County commission has chosen a former deputy director of the state health and human services department to fill a vacancy in the Nevada Assembly.

Commissioners voted Tuesday to appoint Democrat Amber Joiner to the Assembly District 24 seat. She replaces Democrat David Bobzien, who was appointed to the Reno City Council earlier this month.

He filled a vacancy left when councilmember Hillary Schieve was elected mayor.

Twelve people applied to the seat. They included Ross Armstrong, Andrew Diss, Margaret Flint, Heather Goulding, Michael Guss, Erik Holland, Glenn Miller, Stephanie Schoen, Brad Summerhill, Matthew Tuma and Anne Marie Vierra.

It's the third Nevada Legislature vacancy filled by an appointment in the past two months.

The Clark County Commission replaced two Republican lawmakers who took other jobs after November's election.
