The City of Spokane has a new Councilmember. Karen Stratton not only works for the City but now will make major decisions for the jurisdiction. She was up against several impressive candidates, including one who received the lion’s share of support from the public.
Here’s the Spokesman-Review’s account of what happened at the Council meeting last night.
Kitty Klitzke, a member of SRTC’s Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC), was also a candidate for the position. While she would have been great to have on the Council because she knows the transportation needs and challenges of the area, she’s a very valuable member of the TAC and we would struggle without her.
