Spin Control

Compare the candidates

Ballots for the Aug. 16 primary will be mailed next week, and The S-R's Election Center is up and running.

That means voters can examine, campare and contrast the positions of Spokane candidates in the answers they submitted in our candidate questionnaire.

All candidates for Spokane city office were given the questionnaires on June 16. They were due back July 5.

Candidates for mayor were asked 30 questions. Candidates for City Council president were asked 25 and candidates for City Council were asked 20.

Only two chose not to participate: Robert Kroboth and Chris Bowen. Kroboth refuses to interact with the media. Bowen said he would not fill out the questionnaire because he believes he hasn't been treated fairly by The S-R.

In the next few days, I'll compile some of the answers to some questions for the City Council's Northeast seat. But you don't need to wait for Spin Control to read the answers, the questionnaires already are fully accessible at the Election Center.
