Democrats eye a majority on the Washoe County Commission
In the Washoe County Commission District 5 race, a victory for Democrat challenger Edwin Lyngar over incumbent Republican Jeanne Herman could create a 3 to 2 Democratic majority on the commission.
Democrats – and at least one Republican – say flipping the seat would help relieve political tensions in the county.
‘It is time to change the Republican narrative of tearing things down,” says Washoe County Democratic Party chair Sarah Mahler, who believes that the end of traditional Republican control of the commission will help in binding the community and uniting people against what she characterized as Republican divisiveness.
