And now to Spokane’s Third Legislative District, where longtime Spokane state legislator Timm Ormsby faces a challenge from south Spokane neighborhood leader Dave Lucas.
Dave Lucas is a retired Marine who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He retired as a lieutenant colonel. In 2013, he and his family moved to Spokane.
“In the Marine Corps, when you move somewhere, as soon as you pull in and the moving trucks start unloading, the neighbors just descend on you with welcoming, gifts, points of contact, suggestions. When I moved in the neighborhood, we didn’t really have that,” Lucas said.
