Sen. Mathews says she will run again in '06

Sparks Democrat Bernice Mathews says she will run for re-election to the Nevada Senate in 2006.

Mathews has represented Washoe Senate District 1 since 1995.

"There are all these rumors I'm not going to, so I want to stop that rumor," she said. "Yes, I'm running again but it's going to be my last run."

Mathews is a member of the Finance Committee as well as Human Resources and Legislative Operations. She also serves as Assistant Minority Floor Leader.

Prior to her election to the Nevada Senate, she was a member of the Reno City Council and chairwoman of the Reno Civil Service Commission.

She is currently halfway through her third four-year term.
