Crowd gathering outside City Hall

Opponents of the proposed "Spokane Bill of Rights" charter amendment gathered outside City Hall in the intermittent drizzle, starting about 5 p.m., warming up for Monday night's council meeting.

It's an interesting coalition that includes the Spokane Home Builders as well as longtime members of the county Republican Party from both the fiscal conservative and social conservative wings. Organizer Michael Cathcart worked on the Ron Paul campaign last year. Organizer Mike Fagan, a candidate for City Council, works with Tim Eyman on statewide initiatives.

They attracted about 65 people of all ages to carry signs like "Envision Spokane - Envision Spokane Jobless".

Envision Spokane, for those not keeping track at home, is the sponsor of the charter change.
