Re-elect Waldref

Spokane has a great City Council member in Amber Waldref. She has shown dedication and thoroughness in her efforts. I agree with her priorities of good-paying jobs and making our neighborhoods safe places to live.

Amber is home grown and responsible. She has also been working with the Northeast neighborhoods to bring businesses to the industrial area of the city. We look forward to her involvement. I urge voters in the city’s 1st District to re-elect Amber to the City Council.
