Re: “Salvatori Salvaging

Wow, I took away an entire different perspective on the Salvatori posters in the dilapidating empty buildings in downtown Spokane.


What I saw was a guy who three years ago was a multimillionaire living in California who decided to move operations to Spokane WA.  I see him campaigning like campaign folks campaign in California; namely ads that look like he is selling blue jeans and sport coats versus running for the HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE COUNTY….looks are more important than substance…which is why California is 30 billion dollars in the red….


Why would a CA based multimillionaire come to Spokane County, and, in less that three years, run for County Commissioner anyway?    </b>


What qualifications does a millionaire businessman from California, whose never held elected office ever, have to be a county commissioner…especially in Spokane County?  What does he know of how the county works?  For that matter, who anyone is?


Does he know for example why the Spokane City bought the old YMCA white elephant building or why the Waste to Energy Plant was built?  Or perhaps the history of the hellish private public partnership of River Park Square?


I’d bet no.


To be an effective County Commissioner one must have the experience and connections to do the job.  Since Salvatori has been here for less than three years; he will need someone to direct him on issues and “guide” his vote. 


Who do you think is going to do this for Steve Savatori ?  Perhaps the very commissioner that endorsed him months ago; Todd ‘Race Track’ Mielke.  The late Jim West  BBFL…


Chances are good that Steve Salvartori is a nice guy millionaire from California; perhaps he is running with good intentions to serve his new homes highest office. 


But it is not unreasonable to expect him to spend a few more years here in Spokane County before seeking any public office; for the sake of the electorate and the billion dollar budget the commissioners must master and manage….


Besides, is he going to give up his multimillion dollar empire and million dollar salary so he can be a Spokane County Commissioner and make a mere $90K per year?


No world travel and running marathons in different lands if you need to be here in Spokane to vote on where to build the next sludge recovery plant….


Steve Salvartori does not pass the reasonability test as a viable candidate for county commissioner…</b>


If he were the stand up guy he is portraying himself to be, he would resign from the race….and perhaps run again in 2014….


Besides, Todd Mielke already has his own guaranteed vote with the County Commissioners; why should he have two?


Does anyone know where to buy those jeans Salvartori wearing on his posters?</b>
