Two open Spokane Public School Board of Directors seats have attracted 13 candidates.
Nine of those candidates agreed to speak to Spokane Public Radio’s Rebecca White.
Riley Smith works at a food bank non-profit and is a North Central High School Alumni. He said he’s focusing on the growing mental health needs in public schools and the need for tech and trade school opportunities.
Interviews with other candidates are airing this week and on spokanepublicradio.org.
