I work for you.

I have spent 28 years working to make Spokane a safer, stronger community — including serving on City Council for the past three years.

As your councilmember, I have expanded the Multifamily Housing Tax Exemption to increase housing opportunities at all income levels. I led the charge to secure more funding for street improvements. Working with community members, I have found innovative ways to slow down cars in neighborhoods and preserve local gems.

Our City Council needs a leader who listens to the community, fights for what matters and gets things done. I work for you — “and I’m here to work alongside you to find real solutions for the issues that matter to you. Together, we can build a more vibrant Spokane for everyone.”

— Breean

Breean Beggs always listens to his constituents. Really listens. Doesn’t nod and agree and walk away. Doesn’t look for the lights and headlines and photo ops...He treats people with respect and has been unwavering in his support of restorative justice.
