Filing week shocker: Hession enters race for Spokane City Council president

Former Spokane Mayor Dennis Hession on Thursday filed to run for Spokane City Council president.

His decision is the big surprise so far this week among candidates entering Spokane races.

Hession was City Council president in 2005 when Mayor Jim West was recalled from office. Hession was elevated to mayor and served in that spot until defeated by Mary Verner in 2007.

Hession has endorsed David Condon in this year's race for mayor.
