Schieve, Ward Compete for Reno's At-Large Race

Posted: Updated:

Pierre Hascheff has held Reno's At-Large Seat since 1993. Term limits mean he's out. And as he runs for Justice of the Peace in Department 6, David Ward and Hillary Schieve are running to replace him.

David Ward is in advertising and marketing. He ran for this same seat four years ago and says he's up on the issues, involved in the community and ready to hit the ground running.

"I think my background with hundreds and hundreds of businesses has given me the right set of skills to be able to negotiate and be a consensus builder," Ward says. "And I think that is the skill set Reno needs right now."

Ward wants to clean up downtown and make it safe to attract more businesses there. He wants to avoid raising taxes and he wants to see fire services reconsolidated to take advantage of federal funding.

Businesswoman Hillary Schieve is running against Ward. She owns two retail shops in Reno and says that her own experience opening businesses have give her valuable insight.

"I just saw ways to eliminate red tape and so I feel strongly to be a business advocate here," Schieve says.

She understand budgets and business and feels her experience will be valuable in directing Reno's future.

"The economy is rocky and one thing I can facilitate is in being a job creator. I employ 30 people myself and I helped start the Midtown District and I want to create economies in our city."

Schieve says it was the creative approach they took with entrepreneurs and landlords that got Midtown on track and she is excited about a new mix of people on the council and about moving the city as a whole....ahead.

Remember the At-Large Ward represents the entire city, not just a ward. And in Reno, voters vote on all of the wards. So check out the other stories on our website.
