Shawn Vestal: It’s up to Matt Shea’s voters to do the right thing – and they haven’t done it yet

If anything, the growing condemnation of Matt Shea by local officials, in response to the latest details about our region’s foremost conspiratorial, paranoid, gun-worshipping, anti-government zealot, will just fuel his appetite for martyrdom. Shea’s end-times worldview, in which he casts himself as a righteous warrior against evil, requires the presence of an enemy, after all. The government, liberals, the media, Islam, the sheriff – the more that sane people object to Shea, the more he likes it.

Editorial: Northeast council race is the one to watch

Ballots went out at the end of last week for the Aug. 6 local primary election. Spokane City voters will find several competitive and crowded races for council. Mayor, council president and three council seats all are up for grabs. The most important and interesting race is for District 1, Position 1, which covers the northeast third of the city. It features seven candidates, and the winner has the potential to bring an important element of diversity to the council. But what sort of diversity? The seven candidates fall into three groups. Two (Michael Cathcart and Tim Benn) would bring policy diversity. Two (Jerrall Haynes and Naghmana Sherazi) would bring social diversity. And the remaining three are a hodge-podge who are well-intentioned but don’t match the other four’s appeal.

Guthrie assumes the office as City Hall and Spokane County remain locked in talks about how to best share tax revenue if the district were to include areas beyond the city limits.
