Eugster says he won’t run for council president

Former City Councilman Steve Eugster said Wednesday that he no longer plans to run next year for Spokane City Council president.

Earlier this week City Councilman Steve Corker announced that he will run for the seat.

Eugster filed to run for council president last year after he lost a bid for city council.

“I want to spend the last years of my life engaged in intellectual legal efforts, as opposed to political legal efforts,” Eugster said in an interview.

In a case that ended in the state Supreme Court, Eugster was suspended from practicing law for 18 months. That suspension ends on Dec. 13.

Eugster could be back at the state's top court next year, arguing a case challenging how state appeals court judges are elected.
