While I'm not a city resident, I do work and play in the city so I do some interest in the city government. I was reading through the questions posed to the candidates by the Spokesman Review and found the answers by Mary Verner and David Condon interesting and enlightening. (I'm sorry but I don't consider Barbara Lampert, Michael Noder, or the silent Robert Kroboth to have a serious chance of being elected.)
Verner's answers are refreshingly factual, pertinent and contain much needed context. Condon's answers reveal a anti-tax and anti-union undertones and seem to reflect his former boss's positions.
Ought to be an interesting race.
