It is at times like these we need proven leadership. Someone with the background, education, and commitment to the community to revitalize our city. A long-standing advocate for small business, economic development,
and public safety.
Britton Griffith, Vice President of Reno Engineering Corporation (a development services company based in Nevada), and past Reno City Planning Commissioner, officially filed to run for Reno City Council Ward 1 in the 2020 election cycle. Ward 1 encompasses the central-west area of Reno. Griffith stated, “I believe Reno has entered a critical time that demands a consensus-building community advocate that is passionate about protecting and preserving our neighborhoods, Ward 1 requires an effective leader who will support the economic vitality and quality of life the citizens of Reno deserve. I believe I am that leader.”
As a 5th generation Nevadan, University of Nevada graduate, female business owner and a past City of Reno Commissioner, I am fiercely committed to preserving and protecting our neighborhoods.
As a City Councilperson, often you are one critical vote out of seven. If elected, my promise to you and my fellow neighbors of Ward I is that my one vote would be dedicated to ensuring sustainability, supporting small businesses, and protecting our parks and citizens.
Good afternoon Reno, today I am excited to share with you my message and vision for Reno’s future. After two appointment seat opportunities I have officially signed my papers to run for Reno City Council Ward 1 during the 2020 election cycle. I want to hear from you which is why my website is translated in more than 20 languages. I am also practicing conscious campaigning efforts and taking every opportunity to collaborate with my neighbors. Thank you and see you on the Campaign Trail.
My years of volunteerism and commitment to our growing community has enforced my dedication to make safer streets, to build a better city a more sustainable community, to engage with our neighbors and support our growing local business. With the passion to protect and preserve our natural scenery, our history and our future.

STOP! Stop at the stop sign, stop texting and driving, stop running red lights, stop racing because you are late, just STOP!
In 2012 I was walking to work at about 7:00am downtown and was hit by a car who rolled the red stoplight, while I was in the crosswalk. Luckily, I was fine, only shook up. In 2014, a friend of mine from high school was hit in a crosswalk at night at the University, he was killed.
Reno is in the midst of unprecedented change. Out of these times of positive population growth comes many challenges, of which we need to make smart decisions that will ensure our neighborhoods, parks, rivers and families are being protected, that we are preserving our heritage, that we are responsible about development and supporting our small businesses.
My mother always told me to go out into the world and do well, but more importantly, do good. Since being a little girl, I have made this my mission. I know that I have a duty to my fellow citizens, and I measure the value of my life on the good I can do and influence.
