Verner is balanced

I am amused at the pronouncement beneath David Condon’s name on signs relating to his bid for mayor of Spokane: nonpartisan. The position of mayor is nonpartisan, indeed; but the candidate is as partisan as one can get.

Condon spent years as a high-level staff person for Cathy McMorris Rodgers. If you like McMorris Rodgers, you’ll love Condon. If you don’t like McMorris Rodgers’ conservative sociopolitical views, you will truly dislike Condon’s politics and views, all neatly supported by the conservative right and big business – look behind the rhetoric and follow the money trail.

A progressive Spokane does not need this man as mayor.

If you truly want nonpartisan and balanced representation for the majority, place your money and support on Mary Verner.
