June Events

Primary Candidate Forums

Mark Wednesday, June 20th and Thursday, June 21st to attend the Primary Candidate Forums at Spokane City Hall, Council Chambers (map on Calendar page click on the address). The public is welcome. The forums start at 3:30 pm and go until approximately 6:30 pm.

If you cannot attend watch them online and on City Cable Channel 5 afterward. Links will be posted when they are ready, about a week.

A forum is similar to a debate except that candidates answer questions prepared by League members.

The League believes in the importance of the Primary Elections. We educate voters through our forums.

On Wednesday, June 20th the Congressional District 5, the State Legislative District 3 and 6 races will be covered.

Thursday, June 21st will be the District Court Judge, Position 1 and the County races: Commissioner District 3, Assessor, Clerk, Sheriff and Treasurer. Commissioner District 2 will be taped at a later date.

New Book Review

Susan Gray has added another book review. This book is a "dual" book review, comparing Hillary Clinton's book about the 2016 presidential campaign with DNC Chair Donna Brazile's book about same subject--a really fascinating look at two interpretations of the same event by two powerful Democratic women who shared a commitment to the same goal - making Hilary Clinton the first woman US president.
