Swearing In Day - Nov 10th
I found out that I get sworn in at the next meeting of the Reno City Council, November 10th at noon at City Hall. (Old FIB building at First and Virginia Streets). With our trip to New York Friday for my husband’s marathon, and not returning until Tuesday, that means I have two days to transition my law work to other attorneys in the office, move out, and “train” for court. Since there is no time to contact everyone or issue invitations, please consider this your invitation to come watch the “swearing in” if you’d like. Thanks again to everyone who supported me, helped in the campaign and voted for me.
Thank you to all who supported, encouraged, helped or just cheered me on in this election campaign. It’s been an honor competing to serve you in our community. Win, lose or draw it’s been a wonderful experience and I am so grateful that you put your faith in me. You are truly wonderful!

The incumbent was appointed to the position in 1996 and has never faced an election opponent. It’s time the public has a voice. It’s time the voter has a choice. I am running as an experienced and qualified candidate, to offer a new perspective to the Court.
