  • Jacquelyn Belock
  • Paleontologist Jacquelyn Belock is running for Cheney City Council, Position 3. Belock is a professor at Spokane Falls Community College, and she also works as a precinct committee officer. She moved back to the area to raise her kids, and is running to represent working families and small businesses. Belock’s platform is focused on COVID recovery, getting schools safely back in person, expanding green space, updating infrastructure, preventing wildfires, and investing in affordable housing. In this race, she has earned the endorsements of her local Democrats and a regional labor council.

    Justin Amyot and Ryan Delaney are two conservatives running against Belock. Amyot, who co-manages a local optometry office, boasts a very far right platform. He has advocated for the total cut of social services that Spokane residents rely on, and he is aligned with the Trump-led, conspiracy about critical race theory. Delaney is the general manager at a local inn who is running on a conservative platform to defund social services and public goods.

    Tim Gainer, brother of former mayor Allan Gainer, works for an internet services company based in Cheney. He also ran for Cheney mayor in 2017 and has not provided any detailed campaign information in this race.

    Mark Posthuma, a pastor, nonprofit board leader, and avid local volunteer, is also in this race. Posthuma does not have any specific campaign priorities and lacks a campaign website as of mid-July.

    In this crowded race with few good options, Belock is the clear choice.
