GOP commissioner candidates split county

Incumbent Democrat Bonnie Mager won most  precincts, and Republican David Elton trailed the pack in most. After subtracting their votes out, we get a picture of an interesting split among Al French, Jeff Holy and Steve Salvatori.

Not surprisingly, French, a former Spokane city councilman from the Northeast Council District, ran strong in the City of Spokane’s northern precincts. Salvatori outpolled him in some of the heavier voting southern city precincts and Holy ran strongest in the southwest precincts of the county.

The general election is a new ballgame, however, because the entire county votes.

Organizer Christine Snow said they were still trying to contact David Elton.

Forum is open to the public. Starts at 6:30 p.m. at New Life Church, 10920 East Sprague, and is scheduled to go about two hours.
