Trio of Council seats contested
5/29/2013

From Staff Reports

City of Liberty Lake voters will have decisions to make this summer as three of the four open Council positions drew a pair of candidates during the recent filing period held in April.
Most notable, perhaps, is Council position No. 2, which will have a new representative after incumbent Josh Beckett chose not to seek a second term. Beckett's four-year term in office included a run for the mayoral office in 2011, an election won by current Mayor Steve Peterson.
Liberty Lake ballots will also include local races in other jurisdictions, most of which are not contested. Following is a list of candidates who have filed for office that will appear on most or all Liberty Lake ballots.
