Allen, Salvatori call on Fagan to apologize

A majority of the Spokane City Council is calling on Councilman Mike Fagan to apologize for the letter he signed calling Gov. Jay Inslee “a lying whore.”

The council's three Democratic-leaning members issued a statement condemning Fagan's letter this morning.

Now two of the council's Republican-leaning members, Steve Salvatori and Mike Allen also say he should apologize.

“I know Mike believes in the intent of his message, but his choice of words were inappropriate and unprofessional, and in my opinion, he should issue an apology,” Allen said.


Salvatori said the letter reflected poorly on the City Council and contradicts how Fagan has acted as a member of City Council.

“I'm hoping that he will apologize not for his position, but his choice of words,” Salvatori said.

Spokane Mayor David Condon declined to comment on Fagan's letter on Thursday.
