List Of Reno Mayoral Candidates Growing


Six candidates had filed to run for mayor before noon and the city clerk is expecting many more filings over the next two weeks. The perceived front-runners were eliminated when the Nevada Supreme Court ruled that they couldn’t run because they served their term limits.

University of Nevada Reno Political Science Professor Erik Herzig says, now the public will see the kind of race term limits was intended to produce.

“New faces, new ideas, new groups would have a chance to be better heard in an electoral arena, I would say the mayors race is showing some evidence of that.”

Herzig says it is likely that there will be more money in the race. Political consultants in Reno say all those candidates will need support teams to win name recognition in the run up to the primary election in May.
