The race for Reno’s Ward 3 pits two-term incumbent Oscar Delgado against political activist and first-time challenger Rudy Leon. Delgado, who also serves as the CEO of Community Health Alliance, is often quiet during council meetings but active in the community. Leon is a librarian by trade but currently works as an editor. She says she wants to take a more proactive approach to address the city’s needs.
Reno’s Ward 3 stretches across most of eastern Reno from North McCarran to Hidden Valley and includes Renown Regional Medical Center and the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Municipal races in Nevada are non-partisan.
