Dan Stewart Appointed as New Ward 4 City Councilmember
Submitted by City of Henderson

Henderson, Nev - The Henderson City Council today appointed Dan Stewart to fill the vacant Ward 4 council seat. Mayor Andy Hafen, Councilwoman Gerri Schroder, Councilman John Marz and Councilwoman Debra March all voted in favor of Stewart's selection.

A total of  19 eligible individuals sought the appointment, but applicants Greg Barnes, David Frommer and Brett Harris Hagerty asked that their names be withdrawn from further consideration. Each of the 16 participating applicants made opening and closing statements to the City Council and were asked to answer a series of questions during the public interview process.

The City Council then selected five finalists -- Luke Adamo, Nathan Henderson, Craig Rosen, Stephen Silberkraus and Dan Stewart -- and conducted another round of interviews before selecting Stewart as the new Ward 4 appointee.

Stewart has been a resident of Henderson since 1979 and formerly served as vice-chair of the City of Henderson's Planning Commission where he was a member from 2012-2015. He is a graduate of Western High School, Brigham Young University and Stanford University.

The Ward 4 vacancy was created when former Councilman Sam Bateman tendered his resignation after being elected to Henderson Justice Court. Stewart will fill the remainder of former Councilman Bateman's term, which ends in June 2019. Stewart will be sworn-in at a special City Council meeting at 5 p.m. on Jan. 17.
