2017 PRIMARY ELECTION CANDIDATE STATEMENTS: Dr. Ingemar Woods

Posted: Updated:

Statement from Dr. Ingemar Woods:

  • Eliminating the City Councilmember’s city paid for healthcare
  • Support Property owner rights
  • City council accountability and transparency
  • Eliminating the City of Spokane Valley’s at-large election system for City Council elections. Equal representation calls for districting (grouping the current precincts) for each council position
  • Investing in people not just the infrastructure
  • Ensure low-income families have access to affordable housing
  • Reduce crime rates by increasing employment opportunities for all residents (including ex-offenders)
  • Create a City sponsored Summer Youth Corps
  • Increase snow removal response time
     

Ingemar (Lloyd) Woods believes that all residents should have equal opportunity to thrive as law abiding citizens within their community. He also believes that a city’s health is greatly impacted by the employment opportunities its residents have.

He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables.
