First of all, I'm sorry I've been neglecting the blog this week. Between a really lovely cold and scrambling to get voter's guide information done, it just slipped to the side. You can look for our comprehensive voter's guide in Tuesday's paper.
Along those same lines, a candidate debate is planned for 5 p.m. Monday at Central Valley High School, 821 S. Sullivan Road. The debate was supposed to be for all candidates running for Spokane Valley City Council, Liberty Lake Mayor, Liberty Lake City Council and Sate Senate District 4, but we received word today that none of the Spokane Valley candidates have committed to coming. The debate is being hosted by the CVHS government classes.
The event opens with a meet and greet with the candidates, followed by an opening speech by Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich. After the candidates have answered questions, the students will have a debate on various local and state ballot issues.
