RENO —On Wednesday, the Comstock Residents Association will host the first in a series of events designed to aquaint voters with the candidates for Storey County Commission seeking election in November.

“We want to give the community an opportunity to get one-on-one with each of the four candidates for Storey County Commission, to express concerns and have questions answered”, said Robin Cobbey, chairperson for the CRA. “There are so many issues beyond the currently hot topic of mining in a historic district that we, as a community, need to address with these candidates. After all, once elected, they will have the responsibility for the future health and welfare of Storey County residents.”

This first event will introduce voters to candidate Lance Gilman, local businessman, brothel owner and sales and marketing director for the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center. Gilman seeks to replace Commisioner Bob Kershaw, who is not running for re-election, in the county that is home to the Comstock Historic District.

Pending confirmation, details of the future meet-and-greet events will be released this week.

The Comstock Residents Association is a community-focused public interest group representing the residents of Virginia City, Gold Hill and Silver City, with a common interest in preserving the integrity of the Virginia City National Historic District and the quality of life in the Comstock communities it embraces.
