Today on Inland Journal, we’ve spent two programs during the last month talking with the candidates for Spokane mayor. Now we talk with the man they’re hoping to replace.

With five months to go in his administration, David Condon is still moving ahead on a variety of issues, including homelessness. For example, the city is planning to buy a building to renovate for a homeless shelter in east Spokane, near the city’s border with Spokane Valley.

But we asked him about something else: a city proposal to create its own facilities to handle people charged with misdemeanor crimes.
 
Our full interviews with the candidates who want to replace Condon are available for listening anytime on the Spokane Public Radio website. Click on the regional news tab and then on Election 2019, or go to the Inland Journal page.

The ballots are due out any day. They must be returned, either to a ballot drop box or the county elections office, or by mail, postmarked anyway, by August 6.
