Mumm Wins Hot Seat on Spokane City Council

By Paige Browning

The race for city council, district-three turned the tables in city council politics in Tuesday’s election. Candace Mumm has all but declared victory, winning early on with 54-percent, compared to candidate Michael Cannon’s 45-percent.
 
We spoke with Mumm while she was at an election night celebration. She said she is very thankful, and her family has been in Spokane for quite a long time. She said she is thankful for "the faith and support of all the great neighborhoods of north Spokane, and I look forward to representing them.”

If certified, Mumm will take over Nancy McLaughlin’s seat. Though city council seats are non-partisan, the council currently leans conservative. But Mumm has much stronger progressive tendencies than her predecessor, which is expected to change the dynamic. Candidate Michael Cannon was not available my phone for comment on election night.
