Former TV anchor Nadine Woodward runs for Spokane mayor

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Former television anchorwoman Nadine Woodward is running for mayor of Spokane.

Woodward announced her run on Tuesday in downtown Spokane.

Woodward spent nearly 30 years as an anchor at KXLY and KREM in Spokane.

She is the second well-known candidate to enter the race, joining Spokane City Council President Ben Stuckart.

Spokane Mayor David Condon is barred by term limits from seeking a third term.

Woodward says she wants to recapture the ambition that brought the 1974 World’s Fair to Spokane, and use it to solve problems like homelessness.

The office is non-partisan and the primary election is Aug. 6.
