Re-Elect Mary Kuney Spokane County Commissioner
I am honored to have been elected to the Board of County Commissioners! I’d like to thank all the people of Spokane County for your support and encouragement. I look forward to representing you, the citizens of Spokane County.
I know what you're thinking: "Mary is running for County Commissioner again already??" Yes, I am!
Thanks to the overwhelming support of the community, I was appointed County Commissioner in 2017 to take Shelly O'Quinn's seat on the Commission. I then had to run in 2018 to retain my seat and thanks to the citizens of Spokane County, I won with over 60% of the vote! However, winning in 2018 just meant finishing Shelly's original term from when she was elected in 2016, and sadly did not give me a new four-year term. So, I am officially announcing that I am running in 2020 for re-election as County Commissioner.
Thank you everyone for all your support that made this happen! And a special thank you to Spokane County Clerk Tim Fitzgerald for swearing me in!
This has been a great adventure for the last year and a half working through the appointment process and running to retain my position. I am honored to have the support of Spokane County citizens and will continue to work hard on your behalf!
BREAKING NEWS! Take a look at the November issue of the Current and see how East Valley and University High School students voted after a candidate forum of County Commissioners. The story is on page 18.Ok, I’ll tell you — I won! 51 to 5! You read that right. After debating very thoughtful questions on homelessness, opioid addiction, mental health, and racism with my opponent, the attendees of the debate voted 51 - 5 in my favor!
I am honored that the Spokesman-Review has endorsed me for County Commissioner!
Spokane Talks does short interviews with all the candidates. You can find my interview here. I hope you will listen and learn more about my background and why I'm running!
