RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Former Councilwoman Jessica Sferrazza's request to reconsider the decision barring term-limited council members from the Reno mayoral race in the Nevada Supreme Court was denied Wednesday.
The petition argued that a single 12-year term would not apply to all members of the Reno City Council, and the court did not consider case history setting precedent that candidate eligibility be considered in such matters.
The decision puts an end to not only the mayoral bid of Sferrazza, but also Councilman Dwight Dortch and Councilwoman Sharon Zadra.
Although Councilman Dave Aiazzi is ineligible to run for mayor, his wife DeLores Aiazzi filed to run on Tuesday. 10 candidates have filed so far.
