A candidate for Spokane City Council, south district, City of Spokane in the 2019 Washington Primary Election, Aug. 6
City: Spokane, WA
Why running: For Liz Fleming, it all started about a year and a half ago, when a family friend retired and bought a condominium in downtown Spokane. But due to safety concerns, that friend ultimately sold the condominium and moved to Coeur d’Alene. That didn’t sit well with Fleming, so she decided to get involved.
Her pitch: In preparation for the campaign, Fleming has been diving into city policies. With her passion for Spokane and her passion for legislation, Fleming believes she can work to improve the city.
Education: A graduate of Mead High School, Fleming earned undergraduate degrees in international business and communication from Whitworth University in 2002 and a master’s degree from Gonzaga University in 2008.
Political experience: After graduating from Whitworth University, Fleming worked as a staff associate for former U.S. Rep. George Nethercutt, a Republican. She has not held any elected positions.
Work experience: Before her recent transition to real estate, Fleming spent her career in fundraising, including at Gonzaga University and at the Washington State University College of Medicine.
