Today was Spokane Mayor David Condon's first day on the job, and he wasted no time.
He held a press conference today, announcing his pick for an interim police chief while he continues the nationwide search for a permanent chief.
He also said he immediately took assistant city attorney Rocky Treppiedi off his duties advising the police department, something the mayor had repeatedly promised to do on the campaign trail. (Check out 12 minutes into the video for his statements regarding Treppiedi.)
And he created an "advisory board on policing" that he says will help him implement his goals for the department.
KXLY put up a raw video of the press conference. Check it out:
