Berkbigler is a Washoe County Commissioner, representing District 1, and was urged to run for Mayor by community members in light of the Nevada Supreme Court ruling on term limits.

“I am humbled by the amount of positive encouragement I’ve received to run for Reno mayor,” Berkbigler said. “I had hoped the Nevada Supreme Court would have made a different ruling, but at this time Reno cannot afford a mayor who needs on-the-job training, and I feel I have the experience in both the private sector and government to provide the leadership Reno needs.”

Berkbigler is a strong advocate for regional economic development and will be a strong voice for continuing to build cooperation among the local governments to better serve the taxpayers.

“I look forward to continuing our work for this community,” Berkbigler said. “Now more than ever, Reno needs a mayor who can lead on economic development to move the community into the future.”

Berkbigler will file her candidacy Monday morning in the City of Reno Clerk’s Office.
