Rocky Treppiedi kept his District 81 School Board seat on the strength of his vote margins in the south and northwest parts of the district, which extends outside the city limits. Laura Carder did well in northeast Spokane, where she’s run previously as a legislative candidate, but those precincts traditionally have fewer voters and smaller turnout than the ones Treppiedi won.
Spokane School Board incumbent Jeff Bierman is in a tight race with challenger Heidi Olson. As in the Treppiedi-Carder race, there’s a distinct north-south split, as the map illustrates. Here’s the latest tally, as of Wednesday evening:
Bierman 17,344 (51,35%)
Olson 16,431 (48.65%)
The Spokane School Board races are too tight to call with any certainty. But a look at the vote patterns shows a definite north-south split in both races.
It’s probably most pronounced in the Position 4 race, where incumbent Rocky Treppiedi has a narrow lead over challenger Laura Carder. Current tally is:
Treppiedi 17,893 (51.64%)
Carder 16,758 (48.36%)
Spokane City Proposition 1, aka the Fire Bond Issue, inched a bit toward the supermajority it needs for passage in Wednesday evening’s count. As the map shows, its support varied around the city. The ballot measure currently has a 58.85 percent approval; it needs 60 percent.
Jon Snyder continues to lead Mike Allen in the South Spokane Council District race. Latest tally:
Spokane’s Fire Bond Issue didn’t have the 60 percent super majority in ballots counted Tuesday night.
