These three can change Spokane

by County and City Employee Writer on September 28, 2013

COUNCIL 2 IS WORKING hard to change the majority on the Spokane City Council in the November 5 elections.


The reason:
 

The present majority of council members are anti-labor.
 

“They have taken positions against civil service, pension benefits and other items that affect our members’ wages and benefits,” explains Council 2 Deputy Director Pat Thompson.
 

Of the five members of the City Council, three positions are up for election this year.
 

The three candidates who are endorsed by Council 2 for the three positions are: Candace Mumm, Jon Snyder and Amber Waldref.
 

“There is a chance in this election to change the majority to people who reflect and support the values of working families,” Thompson says.

“The employees should know that these candidates sought out our support in these races and we have been involved in all three races since their inception,” says Local 270 President Joe Cavanaugh. “They all show respect for all public employees.”
