RENO, Nev. (AP) - Washoe County Commissioner Marsha Berkbigler says a recent court ruling on term limits is prompting her to run for Reno mayor.

The first-term Republican commissioner, in a news release issued Friday, says she'll formally file for the office on Monday morning.

Berkbigler says she was urged to run for mayor by some citizens after the Nevada Supreme Court earlier this month disqualified termed-out council members from running for mayor.

Its decision nixed the announced candidacy of the two front-runners, former Councilwoman Jessica Sferrazza and current Councilman Dwight Dortch.

Berkbigler, whose commission District stretches 1 from Reno to Incline Village, says she'll be a strong advocate for regional economic development.

George "Eddie" Lorton, who sought the high court's ruling, and Chuck Reno also have announced their candidacies for mayor.
