Betsy Wilkerson

City of Spokane - Council President

Elected Experience
Spokane City Councilmember, District 2, 2020-present; During my three years on Council I’ve built a reputation as a common-sense lawmaker – pushing policies to make our neighborhoods safer, our roads better, our city more affordable, and our local economy more vibrant.

Other Professional Experience
Owner, Moore’s Assisted Living Center; As a small business owner myself, I know what Spokane’s businesses need to thrive. I’ll prioritize our small businesses every step of the way!

President, Junior League; Chair, Carl Maxey Center; President, Women Helping Women Fund; Board Member, Innovia Foundation; Board Member, St. Luke’s Community Advisory Board

I’m a community leader, Councilmember, small business owner, and grandmother. I’m running because Spokane deserves leadership that listens. Together, we will 1) Strengthen Community Safety by investing in our safety systems, not tearing them down. 2) Take on Homeless & Housing with the urgency they require. We need to get folks off the streets so they can get the care they need, and work with – not against – neighborhoods and builders to create affordable housing. 3) Prioritize Small Businesses because they are the beating heart of our local economy and help make Spokane so special.
