Ben Stuckart enters race for Spokane City Council president

City Councilman Steve Corker has a challenger to his bid to become Spokane City Council president.

Ben Stuckart, executive director for Communities in Schools of Spokane County, said this week that he will run for the office.

Stuckart's announcement isn't much of surprise. He confirmed last month that he was strongly considering a run.

Former City Councilman Steve Eugster filed paperwork with the state Public Disclosure Commission in 2009 indicating he would run for council president this year, but Eugster said late last year that he had changed his mind about running.

So here's a review so far of the 2011 Spokane races:
