We are in a moment of incredible momentum toward the vitality of our city: Revitalized neighborhood centers, a stunning new Riverfront Park, more businesses choosing Spokane and more job opportunities. Breean’s work to protect neighborhoods as we grow is at stake in this election. Special interest groups have poured tens of thousands of dollars into his opponent’s campaign — to decimate our neighborhoods for their own profit.
Streets Fixed Faster
Responding to community members’ concerns, Breean led the charge to begin paving dirt streets in neighborhoods throughout the city. As Chair of Public Works, he substantially increased funding for road construction, improvements we can see on N. Monroe and E. Sprague.
Protecting neighborhood gems
Breean fought side-by-side with neighbors to prevent an arterial through the new Garden District neighborhood in Lincoln Heights, and worked with residents to prevent the large Morningside Apartment complex that would have increased congestion in Northwest Spokane.
Sidewalks & traffic calming
Working with neighbors, Breean came up with innovative ways to slow down cars in their neighborhoods. He is also leading the charge to secure a revenue stream to repair sidewalks.
More Affordable homes
Breean worked to adjust zoning rules to increase the housing supply and drive down home prices while protecting neighborhoods.

Solutions for Homelessness
Breean has led the charge to provide homeless individuals with the services they need to succeed: 24/7 housing, drug treatment, health care, counseling and job training.
Less Property Crime
Breean collaborated with state lawmakers to begin supervising property crime offenders after their release from prison.
Safer Police Calls
With Breean’s leadership, social workers are now deployed with police officers to de-escalate situations when police are called, keeping everyone safer.
Stronger Law Enforcement
This year, Breean helped secure funding for more than 24 police officers, including Neighborhood Resource Officers that seek to pro-actively prevent crimes, and build relationships in the community.
