Staub will seek re-election

Staff report

Richard Staub will run for a third term as Carson City supervisor saying he will work to improve traffic, control city spending and keep the government efficient and accountable.

“I believe I can continue to meet the challenges the future will bring us in Carson City as I believe I have over the last seven and half years,” he said in statement. “My door has always been open open to all comments and opinions throughout my tenure as your supervisor.”

Staub, an attorney, said he will continue to stress responsibility and is proud supervisors and city staff were able to fix a projected $3 million shortfall to balance this years budget.

He pushed to revive an audit committee and opposed most up-front financial incentives for businesses. The $2 million he voted to give to help open Burlington Coat Factory in the vacant South Carson Wal-mart was done only after others in the city had made a commitment to give the money, he said.

Staub has been the only candidate to announce a run for Ward 4 supervisor, and Supervisor Shelly Aldean has been the only candidate to announce a run for Ward 2, the other supervisor’s seat up for election this November.

Three men have announced they will run for mayor – Sean Lehmann, Bob Crowell and Jim Shirk. Mayor Marv Teixeira has said he will not seek a fourth term.

Candidates may begin filing for all three offices on May 5.
