Spokane Valley residents who were worried about a dirth of interesting council races this year can rejoice.
State Sen. Bob McCaslin filed Friday afternoon against incumbent Rich Munson for the No. 5 Council Position. Munson currently serves as Spokane Valley mayor, although that position is chosen by the council, not the voters.
McCaslin is a Republican legislator who has served in the Senate for 28 years. Munson has been on the council since initial election after incorporation.
Filing closes at 5 p.m. We'll update the list then.
