By  | 

RENO, Nev. (KOLO)-- UPDATE: The Reno City Council has whittled a list of 144 candidates for a vacant seat to four, to replace David Bobzien, who took a job with the state of Nevada.

The finalists are Nathan Dupree, a pastor at Living Stones Church, Britton Griffith, who serves on the Reno Planning Commission and is VP of Reno Engineering Corporation, Krystal Minera, a deli owner and radio station manager, and Devon Reese, a partner at the law firm Reese Kintz.

Thursday, February 14 at 5:30 p.m., the finalists will participate in a Q&A and public meet-and-greet at Reno City Hall in the Council Chamber. Each finalist will be granted a brief opening and closing statement, and in between will field publicly generated questions from the City Clerk.

February 15 at 2 p.m., Council will interview finalists and possibly make an appointment at a Special Meeting at Reno City Hall in the Council Chamber.

ORIGINAL STORY: The deadline passed Friday for applications to replace David Bobzien as an at-large member of the Reno City Council, and 144 people applied.

February 13, 2019, each council member will nominate up to five finalists. Those selected will be invited to Reno City Hall the next day at 5:30 p.m. for a question-and-answer session and meet-and-greet. Their names will be posted online.

February 15 at 2 p.m., the council will interview the finalists and pick Bobzien’s successor. The job pays $75,420 a year.
