A Matter Of Opinion

Fri., Aug. 17, 2007, 3:58 p.m.

City Council District 1 and 2 interviews

The Spokesman-Review's candidate endorsement process includes several elements, including in some cases a face-to-face interview. We also examine candidates' Web sites and campaign materials, study their public records as reported in our own news columns, talk to other community members who have their own insights and sometimes call the candidates with follow-up questions. In the end, we filter that information through an editorial philosophy that has been shaped over the years and produce a recommendation which we offer to our readers for whatever weight they think it deserves.

Last week, the editorial board began interviews for some races in the Aug. 21 primary. Here are the audio tracks from interviews with candidates in Spokane City Council races from District 1 and District 2.

The five District 1 candidates:

Donna McKereghan
Gary Pollard
Bob Apple
Luke Tolley
Robert Stokes Jr.

Three of the four District 2 candidates:

George McGrath
Richard Rush
Brad Stark

Karen Cannon chose not to participate in the endorsement process.
