SPOKANE VALLEY – After the first day of ballot counting in the November 7th election, a local man has taken the lead in the race for the Spokane Valley Fire District Commissioner No. 5 position.
Rick Freier surged to victory with 12,617 votes, at 66.95% of the total. His opponent, George Orr, came in with 6,144, 32.6%.
