Kate Marshall (b. July 22, 1959) is the current Nevada State Treasurer. Marshall, a Democrat, was first elected in 2006 and is serving in her second term.

Education and Career

After graduating from UC Berkeley, Marshall taught English and Commerce in Kenya as a member of the Peace Corps. She later returned to the United States and received a jurist doctorate degree from UC Berkley's School of Law, and interned for U.S. Senator Paul Laxalt's law firm in Washington, DC. She later was accepted to the United States Department of Justice's Honors program.

In 1997, Marshall moved to Nevada at the request of Nevada Attorney General to create Nevada’s Antitrust Unit as Senior Deputy Attorney General.

In 2006, Marshall was elected Nevada State Treasurer.[1]


Re-election Campaign

Ethics complaints were filed by the Nevada Republican Party against Marshall for alleged improper use of publicly-funded web pages, phone lines, and state employees for her re-election campaigns. Nevada GOP state treasurer candidate Steve Martin has also criticized Marshall for running commercials for the Nevada College Savings Plans featuring her name and voice in an election year. [2][3]



Marshall ran for the U.S. House in a special election on September 13, 2011. She lost to Mark Amodei (R).[4]
