Reno Mayoral Candidate Schieve Wins By a Landslide

Posted: Updated:
Hillary Schieve beat out Ray Pezonella on Tuesday night to become Reno's newest mayor.

Schieve garnered over 60% of the vote while Pezonella brought in just shy of 40% of the votes.
We spoke to Schieve and she says she's thankful.

“I'm overwhelmed with just the amount of support and to be surrounded by great friends and family - and obviously be able to represent this beautiful city is such a blessing.”

She says one of her new goals as mayor is to continue to revitalize the city by bringing in new jobs and technology to the area and work on blighted properties downtown.
Putting a limit on spending is also part of her focus. “I think right now the debt obviously is going to be a huge challenge. It's gotta come down to that we have got to stop spending money we cannot afford.”

We did reach out to Ray Pezonella and he tells us he's looking forward to working with Schieve on projects in the future.
