Liberty Lake City Council incumbent faces library trustee in November election

"One of the two Liberty Lake Council members who voted to ban the book “Gender Queer” from the city’s library is now being challenged for her seat by a member of the library’s board of trustees.

Trustee Teresa Tapao-Hunt said she’s been interested in how City Council works since she became a library trustee two years ago, but it was Wendy Van Orman’s vote to ban the controversial book, as well as her subsequent votes to put the City Council in charge of approving library policies, that pushed her to run against Van Orman.

“It was becoming so much of the rhetoric that we’re seeing nationally,” she said. “That’s what prompted me to run."
