This week on Inland Journal:
▪ We’ll profile the two candidates running for what will be an open seat on the Spokane City Council. We’ll meet with Tim Benn and Kate Burke, who are on the ballot in the Northeast district.
▪ Most odd-year elections are devoted to local candidates and issues, but this year, there are a few state legislative races that could have a real impact. The balance of the Washington state Senate could reverse with a change of just one seat. The Senate seat in the Seventh Legislative District is up for grabs this year and, while it isn’t expected to change hands, the potential is there. We’ll talk with the incumbent, Republican Shelly Short, and her Democratic challenger, Karen Hardy.
▪ We’ll also feature the candidate in the Seventh District House race, Republican Jacquelin Maycumber and Democratic Susan Swanson. Maycumber is the incumbent.
