Benn and Kiepe excellent

Elections are important and shouldn’t be ignored. It’s too easy to put your ballot with bills and paperwork then forget to vote. “No one will know” if you don’t vote. By not voting, consequences can be severe, such as taxes passed that you don’t want. Or, City Council’s promoted policies and agendas you don’t like because they don’t addressing true priorities- all because you didn’t vote.

The Spokane City Council race is critical. This Council has extremely little diversity of thought. A super majority is a dangerous thing without a dissenting voice to be acknowledged or have an opportunity of veto. Council President has stated he’d like a 7-0 council and that is frightening for those who are not being represented.

Tim Benn and Tony Kiepe are excellent candidates to provide common sense solutions to the city’s business - which should be about infrastructure, roads, taxes, and safety. All else can be addressed after these priorities are provided.

Restore common sense priorities to the City Council! I know Tim Benn and Tony Kiepe personally and highly recommend their intelligence, right priorities, integrity, and honesty on issues concerning this city. Please vote for them and you will be represented.
