Spokane's former Economic Development Director Theresa Sanders will be the top City Hall administrator under Mayor David Condon.
Many city employees had speculated for months that Sanders would get that top job if he beat Mayor Mary Verner in the November election. Sanders was active in Condon's campaign.
Condon declined to comment earlier today when asked if Sanders would get the job, saying he still had a meeting planned with City Administrator Ted Danek. The announcement was made late this morning in a news release.
Sanders was hired at City Hall by former Mayor Dennis Hession but quit after two years, citing an inability to "change the culture." Sanders, 51, previously worked at Microsoft and has a bachelor's degree from Eastern Washington University in government.
