Today on the Inland Journal podcast, we turn to the Spokane City Council President race. It features Councilman Breean Beggs and businesswoman Cindy Wendle. Both hope to replace the two-term incumbent, Ben Stuckart. We’ll go in alphabetical order. So, today, Steve Jackson will interview Beggs; next time, he’ll talk with Wendle.

Breean Beggs attended Whitworth University and the University of Washington law school. He serves as an attorney in private practice, focusing on social justice, once serving as director of the Center for Justice. He was appointed to the city council in early 2016, then won an election in 2017 to keep his South District seat. If we loses this race, he will still hold that seat.
