ELKO, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Mining Association President Tim Crowley has announced his plans to retire after leading the organization for nearly six years.
Crowley told the Elko Daily Free Press he plans to start a new firm with Jessica Ferrato — Crowley and Ferrato Public Affairs — and they intend to lobby the legislature on behalf of clients.
Crowley said he loves his job with the association and intends to continue to stay engaged with the mining industry. He says the new opportunity was too good to pass up.
Crowley said he hasn't determined when he will formally step down. He said a committee will be formed in the next week to search for a new president.
