On May 19, 2015 the PCOs of The Third Legislative District Democrats gathered for their second quarterly meeting of 2015 at the community room of the Hillyard Branch, Spokane Public Library.
Nine progressive candidates for local office were invited to participate in the meeting. They introduced themselves to the PCO group and spoke about their campaigns.
Because the local races in 2015 are non-partisan, if a candidate wanted the endorsement of The Third LD Democrats they were requested to (1) identify themselves at the meeting as a Democrat and (2) explicitly request the endorsement of the group.
Eight candidates were endorsed by The Third Legislative District Democrats:
Shar Lichty, running for Mayor of Spokane
Ben Stuckart, seeking re-election as Spokane City Council President
Randy Ramos, running for Spokane City Council, District #1
Lori Kinnear, running for Spokane City Council, District #2
John Waite, running for Spokane City Council, District #2
Karen Stratton, seeking to be retained on Spokane City Council, District #3
Donald Dover, running for School District 81 Director, Position #3
Paul Schneider, running for School District 81 Director, Position #4
