Spokane Valley

Positive Change candidates winning

The first numbers are in for Spokane Valley. Proposition 1, which would have changed Sprague and Appleway back to two-way streets, is losing with an overwhelming 82 percent no vote. The incumbents seem to be carrying the night, but the race between Ben Wick and Marilyn Cline is a toss up. Both candidates have just over 49 percent of the vote. Only 20 votes separate the two. Late arriving ballots will decide that race.

Councilman Dean Grafos seems to have won re-election with 55 percent of the vote. Incumbent Arne Woodard collected 51.6 percent of the vote for a smaller lead over challenger Dee Dee Loberg. Chuck Hafner, who was unopposed on the ballot, got 95 percent of the vote. His write-in challenger received 554 votes.

The levy in Spokane County Fire District 8 is also close. So far the yes votes total 50.3 percent of the vote. The bond for a new fire station in Newman Lake Fire District 12 is failing with a 50.3 percent no vote.
