CITY HALL EYEBALL: Bob Apple to announce run for House seat

Posted By on Fri, May 11, 2012 at 11:28 AM


Former Spokane City Councilman Bob Apple will run for a House seat in the 3rd District, according to a message to The Inlander left by a campaign worker.

Apple, 56, is a former two-term Spokane City Councilman who retired last year due to term limits. He's most recently known for showing up and taking questions last fall at former Mayor Mary Verner's non-press conference regarding Otto Zehm. He will formally announce tonight at 5:30 pm at his campaign headquarters at 316 E. Sprague Ave., according to the worker. 

"We need to improve the economy and create some good-paying jobs," Apple said Friday afternoon, adding that, as a legislator, he'd like to lighten state regulations for businesses. 

Apple joins a crowded field of hopefuls trying to replace Rep. Andy Billig, who has announced his run for retiring Sen. Lisa Brown's seat.  

Marcus Riccelli, a political operative serving as an aide for Brown, is running for the seat, as well as Spokane City Councilman Jon Snyder, local businessman John Waite and child daycare reform advocate Tim Benn.
