Council accepts sewage loan

Spokane will borrow more than $1 million from the state to help prevent untreated sewage from spilling into the Spokane River.

Two enter mayoral race

Spokane voters gained two more choices for mayor on Wednesday, and one of them already tops the list for fundraising. David Condon, former district director for U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and former debt collector Robert Kroboth filed to run in the Aug. 16 primary for mayor. They join incumbent Mary Verner; Mike Noder, who co-owns a local demolition business; and perennial political candidate Barbara Lampert.

Spokane mayoral hopeful David Condon has made government salaries an early issue of his campaign, targeting specifically city employees earning more than $100,000 a year. But until taking a leave of absence to run for mayor, Condon himself earned nearly $127,000 annually as a Spokane-based federal employee serving as district director for Republican U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers. Additionally, he has yet to decide whether he would follow incumbent Mary Verner’s lead in capping the mayor’s annual salary to about $100,000 or take the more than $170,000 a year allocated for the job.
