Five nominated to Spokane Police Ombudsman Commission

The five candidates chosen by Spokane Mayor David Condon and the City Council to sit on the Police Ombudsman Commission were revealed today.

According to a statement put out by the mayor's office, the mayor chose Rachel Dolezal, a professor at Eastern Washington University and blogger for local weekly publication, The Inlander, and Kevin Berkompas, a  former Air Force colonel. 

The City Council chose Scott Richter, community indicators project manager at Eastern Washington University, Debra Conklin, pastor at Liberty Park United Methodist Church and Spokane Alliance member, and Adrian Dominguez, a Spokane Regional Health District epidemiologist. Dominguez has also thrown his name in the hat to replace former City Councilman Steve Salvatori, who resigned earlier this year.

The selections still must be approved by the City Council.
