Brandon Siri, a businessman and grandson of a co-founder of the Eldorado Casino, has announced his candidacy for Reno mayor.

Siri released a statement that he will run in the 2018 election. Mayor Hillary Schieve is currently serving her first term in office.

"My campaign exists to see a fundamental shift in the city management of Reno," Siri said in a statement. "Proactive leadership with a focus on safe communities, economic development, affordable housing, and smart stewardship of resources. My campaign is a community lead effort to get Reno on the right track."

Siri's website lists a resume that includes careers in marketing. He is also a member of Reno's Downtown Maintenance Committee.

His grandfather, George Siri Jr., was a partner in launching the Eldorado in 1973 before selling his interest a year later, according to a 2014 report from the Reno Gazette-Journal.
