Process to fill vacancy on Reno City Council moves forward
At the regular meeting of the Reno City Council on February 13, 2019, Council discussed and selected four finalists for the At-Large vacancy from each Council Member's selection of up to five candidates.
The finalists are:
- Nathan Dupree
- Britton Griffith
- Krystal Minera
- Devon Reese
The appointment process and timeline resumes tomorrow as follows:
- *Thursday, February 14 at 5:30 p.m.: The finalists will participate in a Q&A and public meet and greet at Reno City Hall in the Council Chamber. Each finalist will be granted a brief opening and closing statement, and in between will field publicly generated questions from the City Clerk.
- *Friday, February 15 at 2 p.m.: Council interviews of finalists and possible appointment at a Special Meeting at Reno City Hall in the Council Chamber.
* - Both meetings will be live streamed on the City of Reno YouTube channel and televised on Charter channel 194.
For background, David Bobzien previously served as the At-Large member of City Council, but recently resigned from his position to become the new Director of the Governor’s Office of Energy. Thus, a vacancy has occurred in the At-Large position.
At the regular meeting of the Reno City Council on January 23, 2019, Council discussed the vacancy and voted to move forward with an appointment process, not a special election. Per Reno City Charter and NRS, an appointment must be finalized within 30 days of the vacancy.
