Woodward to seek second term as Spokane Mayor

SPOKANE, Wash. — Nadine Woodward has announced she will seek a second term as Spokane’s Mayor.

The former broadcaster was first elected in November 2019, beating out then-City Council President Ben Stuckart.

Woodward had never held office before being elected mayor.

“I am grateful for Spokane’s trust and support. Together, we have accomplished a great deal while leading through a global pandemic and other challenges to find new ways to get things done, established and strengthened crucial partnerships, and brought out a collaborative approach to the forefront in a time of great disruption and division,” Woodward said. “The outcomes we have achieved in public safety, housing, homelessness, economic development, mental health, and operational sustainability have set a great foundation for the work we still have left to do.”

So far, no other candidates have publicly announced their intention to run against Woodward.
