Incumbent Republican Al French is leading in the race against Democratic opponent Robbi Katherine Anthony to retain his seat on the Spokane County Board of Commissioners.
A race for Spokane County Commissioner turned contentious over the weekend when incumbent Al French reportedly called his challenger a “transgender, Bernie-loving, socialist, millennial.”
The union representing Spokane County’s deputy prosecutors has launched a public pressure campaign in hopes of rebooting contract negotiations and obtaining wage increases. Mediated negotiations stalled in August when the union, Local 1553-PA, voted to reject the county’s “last, best and final offer,” which would have immediately raised wages for senior attorneys by 2.5 percent and wages for the two lower attorney classifications by 4.25 percent.
Spokane County Commissioner Al French and challenger Robbi Katherine Anthony traded viewpoints on public safety, housing, growth and economic development during a Thursday afternoon election debate at the Spokane Club.
If you want experience, Al French is probably your pick for Spokane County Commission.
Democrats fared well in Spokane County races Tuesday, but can that momentum last in the general election?
