The Spokane County Auditor's Office may have slightly different percentages than are reflected here because its figures include any write-in votes.
Former state Rep. Dennis Dellwo, a Democrat, and attorney Jeff Holy, a Republican, make their case why their the best to represent the 6th Legislative District, in the state House. The district includes parts of the city of Spokane, and most of the West Plains.
DENNIS DELLWO, Democrat 1. Why do you feel that you are the best candidate? I have been extensively involved in neighborhood and city affairs and have a clear understanding of our community and its concerns. I spent 13 years in the Washington State Legislature. While a legislator I held leadership positions, was chairman of important committees and architect of key legislation. I not only bring this experience to the 6th District, but I will be able to take the 6th and Spokane’s concerns to the table when legislation or budgets are considered. I will hit the ground running. I also spent 12 years as the attorney member of the Growth Management Hearing Board.
