AP article on Wilder electing its first all-Latino city council
Envision Spokane submitted this proposed initiative to the Spokane City Clerk’s office on April 12, 2012. This is the third time the group has proposed a Community Bill of Rights for the Spokane ballot. In 2009 and 2011 the group succeeded in gaining enough signatures to put the matter on the ballot. In 2009, the proposal was soundly defeated. But voters only narrowly defeated a scaled-back version last year. The 2012 version, which could go on the ballot this year or next, is similar to the 2011 initiative.
