SPOKANE, Wash. - Nearly one year after Spokane Mayor Mary Verner picked up a mic to rap at the 'Rawk Final Four' band competition, she's at it again.

At the band competition in February 2009, Mayor Verner rapped about the growth of Spokane from the City's first days as a land occupied by Native Americans, to its transition to a metropolis.

This time, the mayor dusted off her vocal chords in an effort to raise awareness about the importance of donating blood.

"I have no talent, but I really had a lot of fun," said Mayor Verner. "I love the beat... I love the genre... I just think it's edgy and effective."

Verner's costar in the public service announcement is Former Congressman George R. Nethercutt.
