Nine apply for city council seat

Interest is apparently high in the Spokane Valley City Council seat vacated by the resignation of councilwoman Rose Dempsey. Nine people have applied for it and all have been involved in the city in one way or another, with eight of the nine previously applying or running for a seat on the council or the planning commission.

The nine are: SCOPE volunteer John Baldwin, self-employed carpenter Joseph Collins, actor Ronald Lippincott, community activist DeeDee Loberg, distribution specialist Steven Neill, architect George Watson, IT administrator Ben Wick, customer service representative Jennie Willardson and Spokane Valley Planning Commissioner Arne Woodard.

In other news, reporter Meghann Cuniff has a couple of crime reports from the weekend. A Spokane Valley woman was cited for hit and run after striking a pedestrian at Pines and Broadway on Saturday. Also on Saturday, a theft was discovered at Valley Landmark Mission, 9021 E. Boone. Someone broke into a room inside the church where electronics were stored and made off with a laptop and camcorder, among other items.
