Last Official Meeting for Termed-out Reno Mayor & Council Members

Posted: Updated:
Wednesday was officially the last city council meeting for a handful of Reno city leaders before their term is up.  Mayor Bob Cashell and city council members Dwight Dortch and Sharon Zadra have all served 12 years on the Reno City Council. The mayor and council members credited their peers and community members for giving them the privilege to serve the Biggest Little City.

It was a bittersweet day for council members as they were getting ready to end their last official meeting.

Several community members one-by-one thanked them. October 22nd, 2014 was also officially proclaimed Bob Cashell, Dwight Dortch and Sharon Zadra Day.

Members of the council were touched. They talked about the legacy they leave behind after more than a decade of work. “It really is a celebration you know. I think back how quickly 12 years have come and gone. But I am so proud of what we have been able to do,” said Zadra.“We really kind of changed the tone of the council -- really kind of became a more professional council,” said Dortch.

After 35 years of public service... Mayor Cashell said the biggest projects that stuck out in his mind were the homeless shelter, train tracks through town and many more. “Then to remodel Virginia Street, plant trees and lights. All those things, the white water rafting course, the Aces ballpark, all those type of things are great things that the team has done,” said Cashell.

So what are their plans now? Dwight Dortch told Channel 2 News he's planning to get back to work and make a living. Sharon Zadra says she has six or seven different options she is thinking about and Bob Cashell… “I've had two or three nice job offers and I'm looking for a job. So if they need a bus boy,  a car washer -- hell, I'm available,” said Cashell.

The next time everyone will be together again is November 12th when the newly elected mayor and city council members will be sworn into office.
