If you read this blog you probably know that I’ve been away from Spokane for several years and just moved back last August. So I’ve been playing catch up on what’s news in Spokane these days; who’s who on the city council … mayor … police chief, sheriff and any number of other subjects including elections and such.
For the past few weeks we’ve been inundated with political ads and advertising pro and con on different initiatives on the upcoming ballot. If you're anything like me, you probably would like to see some objective-type programming that explains some of the issues and highlights the candidates running for the different positions. Yes?
KSPS’ will have a series of election specials coming up over the next few weeks to inform viewers on local, regional and national races and initiatives. Perfect timing KSPS!
I’ve especially been interested in initiatives 1125, 1183 and 1163 – as all three could affect both drinking and driving. And the ads that have been running on all three networks haven’t cleared up any of the questions surrounding these three initiatives.
Voters will also be faced with whether to pay for animal protection and street improvements and to support a community “bill of rights,” three seats on the city council and the mayoral race.
The Election Specials will be a great opportunity to learn more about all the races and issues.
Here’s the schedule:
Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 7p.m./8mtn – “Local Issues and Initiatives”
Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 7p.m./8mtn --- “Spokane City Council Debates”
Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7p.m./8mtn – “Spokane Mayoral Debate/City Council President Debate”
It promises to be lively local programming! Check here for more details.
This should be fun!
