Mary moved to the Spokane area in 1992, and immediately immersed herself in her community as an active citizen and volunteer. She attended Gonzaga Law School while working full-time, and achieved her law degree in 1999.
Before being elected to the top post at the City, Mayor Verner served on the Spokane City Council for four years, representing Council District 2, south of the Spokane River.
