Mayor seeks rare re-election

Can Mary Verner break the curse of the one-term mayors? For a big clue, residents can look to the upcoming primary election. No Spokane mayor has won re-election in four decades, but Verner is intent on doing so. The mayoral primary – ballots go out this week – promises few surprises. At this point, only Verner and David Condon seem to have the support and campaign funds to win, although they face three long-shot challengers. But, assuming they take the top two spots, who finishes on top and the distance between them will give voters their first clue as to what November may hold.

Funds growing in race for Spokane mayor

With about six weeks to go before the August primary, one challenger for the job of Spokane mayor has raised almost twice as much as incumbent Mary Verner. The other three challengers, however, haven’t raised anything.

Two enter mayoral race

Spokane voters gained two more choices for mayor on Wednesday, and one of them already tops the list for fundraising. David Condon, former district director for U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and former debt collector Robert Kroboth filed to run in the Aug. 16 primary for mayor. They join incumbent Mary Verner; Mike Noder, who co-owns a local demolition business; and perennial political candidate Barbara Lampert.
