Perennial candidate Barbara Lampert is running for ….

Mayor of Spokane.

Lampert, a former nurse's assistant, has run for office every year for about the last 15 years. Last year, she placed third in the six-way primary for Congress, even beating the candidate endorsed by the Democratic Party.

Today is the second day candidates can file to run in the August primary. Deadline to file for office is on Friday. Lampert, 65, filed her paperwork this morning at the Spokane County Elections Office. She also paid the $1,693.58 fee (1 percent of the mayor's salary) .

In the race for mayor, she joins incumbent Mary Verner and Mike Noder, who co-owns a demolition company.
