John Roskelley Allowed To Run For County Commissioner in Dist. 1

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - It's been a controversial start to the campaign to become Spokane County District One County Commissioner, but  on Wednesday the Chelan County Auditor stepped in and ruled that John Roskelley will be allowed to run for the seat on the August 7th ballot. 

The ballots  were scheduled to go to the printer today, but the Republican Party will have a chance to appeal the decision. Regardless of  whether they decide to appeal, Roskelley's name will be on the ballot. If the Republican party wins an appeal, their only option may be to disregard Roskelley's votes.  

It all started back in May when the Spokane County Republican party challenged the fact that Roskelley could run because they said he does not reside in District One.  

In 2005 Roskelley bought a piece of land on East Heron Lane, near the base of Mount Spokane, in District One, with the intent to one day build his retirement home there.  

Because of the tough economy, the Roskelley's did not   begin the project until the middle of last year and in May of 2011 they sold their farm on East Foothills Drive, also in District One. After selling their farm that they lived on for 27 years they "temporarily" stayed at their son's house on West Kiernan in Spokane.

Their son's home is 20 miles away from the farm and its address is in District Three. Roskelley actually was still staying there when he registered for District One County Commissioner back in May, and in 2011 he actually voted in District Three. Roskelley maintains he always had the intent to start the build shortly on East Heron Lane.

As of  Wednesday the only thing on Roskelley's District One property (East Heron Lane) is an RV. He moved the RV to that location on Sunday, three days before the hearing. Because the Chelan County Auditor had to determine whether he lived there "on the day of the hearing for the voter challenge," he determined that Roskelley could run for District One County Commissioner and he will be on the ballot in August.
