Condon’s a candidate

David Condon officially became a candidate for Spokane mayor on Wednesday, joining three others, including incumbent Mary Verner.

The bigger news about Condon's campaign is his recent reporting of campaign contributions. Only a month into his campaign, he's already leading Verner in fundraising, having raised $74,630 in May, according to the state Public Disclosure Commission. Verner only has raised $45,407.
