Don’t trust Prop 1

You’re kidding, right? You want the citizens of Spokane to finance the relocation of a few in Airway Heights because someone, after 65 years, is worried about a possible but not very probable disaster?

I am sure the brass at Fairchild Air Force Base was questioned and agreed that, yes, anything is possible but highly unlikely. Where will this lead? Are you going to relocate me? I live in northwest Spokane and have dozens of commercial planes fly over my house every day.

Don’t be fooled, citizens. I believe this has more to do with leverage to be used later on to prevent the construction of a casino. The casinos’ attractive facilities challenge Spokane’s facilities. They include free parking, on-site food, on-site hotel, cheaper costs for entertainers, and things to do before and after the shows, not to forget the additional employment.

Don’t be suckered into funding private Spokane downtown interests.
