Mumm has qualities we need

After reading your endorsement piece regarding the three candidates for Spokane County Commissioner, and after reading about the negotiations to resolve lawsuits over the urban growth boundary, it made me realize that we need someone who can communicate well, who seeks the truth in every situation.

Someone who knows and understands the Comprehensive Plan and the Growth Management Act. We need a business owner, a developer, a neighborhood activist. Someone who develops budgets and lives by them, who plays by the rules of law and is transparent in their actions. Someone who treats neighbors and developers by the same standard with no backroom deals.

We have all of these traits in Candace Mumm. An award-winning investigative reporter who knows how to get the facts and communicate them. She has an MBA from Gonzaga University. She is a certified financial consultant. She volunteered 10 years on the City Plan Commission. She understands how valuable it is to taxpayers that the county follow state law.
