Two candidates who previously said they would run for Spokane City Council formally took the plunge on Thursday morning.
Donna McKereghan, former chairwoman of the Logan Neighborhood Council, and Steve Salvatori, owner of the Spokane Entrepreneurial Center, filed paperwork to officially become candidates.
