Pace gets things done

Our family strongly supports Ed Pace for Spokane Valley City Council Position 4. When Pace lived in Chewelah, we found him to be an energetic and dedicated man driven to improve our community. Under his guidance, we opened a new preschool at our church, which is still serving the children in our town. He also worked with some of us who wanted to develop a larger school, and he became a founder of Riverwood Community School, which is now thriving in Colville.

Thanks to his strong ability to organize, motivate and plan, the Chewelah Farmer’s Market was born, and it now consistently wins national awards. He has such a great gift of recognizing a need, setting a goal and then creating, organizing and building a team to make it happen.

We miss his leadership and want the citizens of Spokane Valley to know how fortunate they are to have him working hard to make their community a better place to live. Please support Ed Pace by giving him your vote.
