Last week, the Spokesman Review Editorial Board interviewed candidates for Spokane City Council District 2. They labeled LaVerne as a “Solid Candidate” for the district. Here is what they had to say about LaVerne:
“Biel is a businesswoman who ran four years ago, losing in the primary to John Ahern and eventual winner Jon Snyder. She has key endorsements from Allen, Mayor David Condon and former council members Steve Salvatori and Nancy McLaughlin. She owns and is the chief executive of Access Unified Networks, which installs voice and data systems for businesses.
She lives near the South Perry District and is a former chairwoman of the East Central Business Association and former president of Associated Builders and Contractors. With that experience, she has a solid understanding of how government can either support or deter businesses.
Biel is concerned the council is ranging too far afield from its official duties. On the other hand, she signed the “sanctuary city” petition, which calls for the Spokane Police Department to get involved in a federal matter.”
