That means you have fifteen extra days to comb through your contacts and locate someone you think has the knowledge, skills, and compassion to serve on the Leadership Team. The Coalition is going through a renaissance of sorts, so it is an especially exciting time to serve!
If you know someone you’d like to nominate (and yes, it’s perfectly acceptable to nominate yourself!) please make sure they’re a voting member of the Coalition, have them fill out the following forms and email them to James:
Today the Spokane Homeless Coalition had a wonderful candidate forum with politicians from the region. We were able to share a few facts on local citizens experiencing homelessness and programs that are working to address the housing challenges our community faces. You can find the Homelessness Facts sheet were presented by clicking here. Additionally, we were able to ask the politicians about their stance on the role of government in affordable housing, the importance of the Housing Trust Fund and their opinions on healthcare reform that impacts the citizens we serve. Look for more posts on the site with more information about the exciting event! And a special thanks to the candidates in attendance:
Timm Ormsby, 3rd District House Representative
Marcus Riccelli, 3rd District House Candidate
Andy Billig, 3rd District Senate Candidate
Dennis Dellwo, 6th District House Candidate
