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.
and a muddy dog does?
Of course Stuckart isn´t speaking for the city.......after all that´s the job of the self appointed grand poobahs, McLaughlin, Allen, Fagan & Salvatori. This is such a retrograde burg, no one who is remotely familiar with Spokane politics would believe the city would actually oppose hundreds of coal cars rumbling thru downtown leaving nothing but toxic dust and pollution in its wake.
I´d rather "Envison" a Community Bill of Rights where neighbors have input into the impacts of development in their neighborhood.
Republican Chair Pederson "dismisses the idea that Riccelli was intentionally taken out of the district." ..... really, and we´re to lap this swill up like it´s Koolaid?Republican motives are dishonest, unseemly and clear.......but this is news to no one.If I were giving advice to Mr. Riccelli, I say rent a little "walk-up" in the 6th.....it worked for Baumgartner.
