Beggs Will Be City Council President

Nov 14, 2019


Cindy Wendle has conceded the race for Spokane City Council president to Breean Beggs.

With the latest count released late Thursday afternoon, Beggs now leads Cindy Wendle by 503 votes. Wendle had been ahead in the race in early results in the days following the election last week.

Beggs says he plans to meet with Wendle to compare notes on the election, and will also meet soon with Mayor-Elect Nadine Woodward.

In the other close city council race, Karen Stratton is ahead of Andy Rathbun by 311 votes in the Northwest District council seat. Only 3500 ballots remain to be counted.
