Holy cow, it’s election season already! The City of Spokane’s primary ballots will be mailed July 28, with the vote on August 16.

Considering the state of the economy, there are a lot of high profile issues on the line with this election. To find out where the candidates stand on these issues, Greater Spokane Incorporated and the Downtown Spokane Partnership are hosting a Spokane City Council President Candidate Forum, with the focus on economic development and business climate issues.

Transportation very much plays into economic development, so this is your chance to ask those important questions on your mind. The forum is Aug. 9 from 3:30-5 p.m. at the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture. It’s free and everyone is welcome, but you’re asked to RSVP if you plan to attend. You can do that here.
