Cannon a great leader

As someone who has worked for Michael Cannon for more than three years, I can tell you firsthand what a great leader he is. Cannon owns a small business in Spokane that employs me and 24 other people. He is a really great person to work for and someone who cares deeply about the people he works with. He’s the kind of leader that makes you want to give your best every day.

He speaks often about the role small businesses have in our city’s economy, and I know this is a responsibility he doesn’t take lightly. He is working hard to grow his business and be able to grow the number of family-wage jobs available in our community.

I also know Michael, the man, who loves his family and chose to raise them in Spokane because he loves this city. He cares about decreasing crime in our communities and making Spokane safer for all of us.

The Michael Cannon I know as a business owner, a boss, a great leader and a friend will make an incredible Spokane City Council member and someone we can all be proud to have put in office.
