This Is Reno hosts candidate forums for county, city and mayoral races


This Is Reno is hosting candidate forums starting in May for the city council, Washoe County commission and mayor races.

“These forums are for people to get to know candidates, not debates,” said This Is Reno publisher Bob Conrad. “We are encouraging candidates to focus on what makes them the best candidate for their chosen seat.”

Each forum is Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the downtown Washoe County Library on Center Street.
