Spokane Valley incumbent advances

Incumbent Spokane Valley City Council member Gary Schimmels sailed through the primary election and will appear on the general election ballot in November along with opponent Ed Pace. Schimmels collected 34 percent of the vote while Pace garnered 36 percent. There are still some ballots to be counted, but the percentages aren't expected to change much.

It will be a tight race and the key to winning may be attracting the 28 percent of voters who cast their ballot for Loberg. While Loberg may be out of the running this year, don't count her out. “I'll just do it again in a couple years,” she said. “I think I have what the city needs. I'm just going to work harder to show people who I am and what I do.”

Look for a story on the election results in tomorrow's Valley Voice.  

Three candidates try for SV council seat

In today's “in case you missed it” category, we ran a story Saturday that profiled the three candidates for Spokane Valley City Council that will appear on the primary election ballot that will hit mailboxes this week. Deputy Mayor Gary Schimmels is running for re-election against opponents Dee Dee Loberg and Ed Pace. Both challengers have previously run for city council and failed. What makes this contest a little more interesting is that the Positive Change group that supported Schimmels in his last election in 2009 have shifted their support to Ed Pace. The two candidates who receive the most votes will advance to the November election. Click here to read my story.
