Where was Cates when the 8th Man group flooded council chambers with disrespectful hostile references to "hookerville" and immigrants?.....Oh, she right there with them, wearing the t-shirt.
Isn't it a little suspect when those being investigated appoint the investigator?
Didn't I read somewhere that Shea had his service weapon taken away at some point in his "service to the country" because he was a bad boy?
Zips in Kennewick in the 60's was the place to go.......vanilla cokes and hamburgers after midnight on Fridays (the catholic thing). Today's Zips in Spokane are owned by right-wingers......not spending my money there.
Interesting that when labor UNIONS support Democrats they are evil incarnate........but when the endorsement goes to Republicans is all sweetness and light. And Lila won't even utter the word union......hey girl, you were at a labor UNION gathering......get any on ya? But on the other hand, I don't understand why labor unions would support Haskell when in the "We Beileve, We Vote" questionnaire he said he was undecided on whether or not he supported the union busting 'right to work' laws.
I´m glad Jon Snyder is running for reelection in my district. His opponents sound less than up on the issues of the day. Mr. Ahern is going to "convene a group of business representatives" to tell him what to do?.....what about his constituents having a little input? And Ms. Biel talks of "broader brush strokes" on citizen issues??...what´s that mean? And she intends to make pedestrian safety the issue on which she and Snyder differ ....really.....has she been paying attention the last four years ...... doesn´t she know the votes he has taken on this issue?The last thing we need is a broad brush stroke council member or another yes-man who votes like they are told instead of delving into the minutia of city government and coming to their own conclusions.
Interesting that McLaughlin is all about "letting the voters decide" when it comes "no new revenue" issues, but not when it is an issue she opposes. Also interesting is the fact that her reasoning for not allowing these initiatives on the ballot is the threat of lawsuits......and she, representing the City, with be the first to file one.
