Fred Pollard vs. Chris Grover
The race for Cheney City Council Position 1 pits first-term incumbent Fred Pollard against Cheney Planning Commissioner Chris Grover. Both are local businessmen and members of several community organizations.
1. Why run for office?
Pollard said he decided to run in 2009 after working with “historic downtown groups and seeing first hand the need for the city of Cheney to improve its economics, develop opportunities and work closer with EWU.” It took him a couple years to figure out his role on council, he said, and having done so sees issues he would like to continue to pursue.
