Good evening, Netizens...
Dennis Hession has thrown his hat into the ring of potential candidates running for City Council President, and once again, it seems as if Spokane is unwilling or unable to learn from its own history. Given that Hession has a long and interesting history in Spokane political circles, but is HE the man to replace the existing Council President Joe Shogun or will he continue Shogun's maniacal reign into the future?
How many lawyers does it take to make a good City Council President? None Make the City Attorney earn his wages and make the Council President in charge of seeking the truth.
Some have said that Joe Shogun has considerably reined in the public input sessions during City Council meetings to a point of non-importance. That might be true, so long as you disagree with how Joe thinks things should be. If you happen to disagree with Joe, chances are good that you will be unable to ask any further questions or voice disbelief with what is going on as Shogun will gavel you into submission. Ask George McGrath. I fear Dennis Hession probably will build on the record Joe Shogun has built as his legacy.
Thus far Steve Corker and Ben Stuckart are in the race for Council President, although I do wonder if anyone else will rise to the top of the political pile. The more the merrier, I say. Of course, your results may differ.
