Municipal government can become more flexible, transparent and adaptive to citizen needs. That core belief informs my approach to the Office of the Mayor and the decisions I make every day on behalf of the community I serve.
My only requirements are that we provide excellent, effective, and efficient services. I want to know: How can we better engage people? Are we accountable? Is this affordable?
We have put the focus squarely on our customers as we prioritize and approach our work in five critical areas:
Really, though, our singular focus is making Spokane the “City of Choice” for the Northwest and we are working hard toward that goal. We are a leaner, more efficient operation today as we bring services closer to citizens, drive greater accountability, and save tax dollars.
There is much work still to do, and I need to hear from you. You are an important voice as we deliver services we can afford and develop a safe, livable community full of the opportunities that makes us call Spokane our home.
Born the same year that Spokane was preparing to shine on the global stage with the Expo '74 World's Fair, Mayor David A. Condon grew up in a place that was safe for families, fertile for businesses, and naturally stunning which gave him a love for the city. After graduating from Gonzaga Preparatory School in 1992, he went on to earn his bachelor's degree in Finance and Military Science from Boston College.
His varied professional career has included military service in the United States Army, starting coffee shops, managing his father's dental practice, and serving as Deputy Chief of Staff for Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers. David and his wife Kristin are raising their three children just a block from David's childhood home. He is passionate about Spokane, making sure this great city remains a place where his own children will want to stay and raise a family.
