Former City Councilman Steve Eugster said Wednesday that he no longer plans to run next year for Spokane City Council president.
Earlier this week City Councilman Steve Corker announced that he will run for the seat.
Eugster filed to run for council president last year after he lost a bid for city council.
“I want to spend the last years of my life engaged in intellectual legal efforts, as opposed to political legal efforts,” Eugster said in an interview.
In a case that ended in the state Supreme Court, Eugster was suspended from practicing law for 18 months. That suspension ends on Dec. 13.
Eugster could be back at the state's top court next year, arguing a case challenging how state appeals court judges are elected.
Spokane City Councilman Steve Corker announced Monday that he will run for Spokane City Council president next year.
Corker, 69, is a former advertising and marketing executive who was first elected to the council in 1999. Rather than run for re-election, Corker ran unsuccessfully for mayor in 2003. He also lost a City Council election in 2005. He returned to the council after winning a seat in 2007.
The only other candidate so far in the race is City Councilman Steve Eugster, who announced his intention to run for the position last year. City Council President Joe Shogan is term limited from running again.
