Local item: Senate honors Spokane’s Bruce Eldredge…

Bruce Eldredge, the departing longtime CEO of the Eastern Washignton State Historical Society (better known for its Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture in Spokane) got some kudos from the state Senate this morning.

After 7 years with the society and museum, Eldredge is moving to become executive director of the larger Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, Wyoming.

Sen. Chris Marr, D-Spokane -- a former vice chairman of the museum -- praised the work of Eldredge, who was sitting in the Senate gallery Wednesday.

"I do understand that it's a career move, but he'll be sorely missed by Spokane and the state of Washington," Marr said.

Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown, D-Spokane, said the flourishing museum is part of the reason visitors are spending more time in Spokane. And she did her part, adding "If you haven't been to the MAC, you've got to check it out."

Approved: Senate Resolution 8693, honoring Eldredge.
