Mayor David Condon

Special Guest Speaker / Keynote (Recorded)

Born the same year that Spokane was preparing to shine on the global stage at Expo '74, Mayor David A. Condon grew up in a community that was safe for families, fertile for businesses, and naturally stunning. After graduating from Gonzaga Prep, he went on to earn his bachelor's degree in Finance and Military Science from Boston College. The first re-elected Mayor in Spokane in more than 40 years, Mayor Condon remains focused on many key initiatives which began during his first term – all aimed at making Spokane safer, smarter, and healthier. These include making major investments in public safety, improving streets, growing jobs and our economy, crafting an affordable budget, leading in developing innovative infrastructure, and increasing the quality of life.

Prior to becoming Mayor of the capital of the Intermountain Northwest, Mayor Condon's distinguished professional career included serving in the US Army, owning and operating small businesses, and serving as the Senior Staff in the US House of Representatives. He was selected as an Aspen Institute Roedel Fellow with a small group of colleagues around the country for values-based leadership and exchange of ideas.

Mayor Condon and his wife, Kristin, are thrilled to be raising their three children near many of their family members in Spokane – which was recently named an All-America City for the third time. He is committed to making sure Spokane grows and is the City of Choice.
