RENO, Nev. (AP) - New Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve (SHEE’-vee) is in Washington D.C. to attend the 83rd winter meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

She’s one of more than 80 new mayors attending the conference Wednesday through Friday.

They’ve scheduled forums on summer jobs and youth employment on Wednesday and will hear from Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday.

Schieve says she hopes to return to Reno inspired with innovative ideas that the city can implement to help spur the local economy. She was elected as Reno’s first new mayor in 12 years when Bob Cashell was termed out in November.
