Sen. Bob McCaslin running for local city council seat…

My colleague John Craig has the story: State Sen. Bob McCaslin, 83, has filed for a seat on the Spokane Valley City Council.

McCaslin, who last November was re-elected to his senate seat, could hold both posts. The challenge would be trying to balance simultaneous duties in Olympia and Spokane Valley. Writes Craig:

The question is whether McCaslin would run afoul of a state law that says council positions “shall become vacant” if a member misses three regular meetings in a row without being excused by the rest of the council. McCaslin said he would hope to be excused from council meetings while the Legislature is in session, but would drive home for an important council vote.
