Read up on Spokane Valley candidates over the Memorial Day weekend

On Tuesday, the Spokane Valley City Council will evaluate 15 candidates for appointment to one of two open positions on the council. The initial discussion takes place in executive session beginning at 5 p.m. followed by nominations and public comment in the open meeting that begins at 6 p.m. Here's a link to all the applications

The council appoints the new council members, so if you have strong opinions about who should be nominated then now is a good time to share your opinion with the city council or an individual councilman. Click here for the city hall contact information. 

Some councilmen have Facebook pages where they post opinions and comments. You can follow them at these links: 

Rod Higgins (has two pages, but this one seems to be the most active)  Bill Gothmann and Ed Pace. 

We will go through this process again to fill the council seat vacated by Bill Bates in June.
