“Spokane could make it easier for those with criminal records to get hired in city jobs. Mayor David Condon announced Monday that he’s asked the city’s Civil Service Commission to change the city’s job application and remove the box asking whether the applicant has a criminal history.
“Condon says he’s also asked the city’s human resources department to wait until later in the application process to run background checks.”
