Opinion

McDonald’s is welcome

I live in the Logan neighborhood, and I totally agree with Jim Cameron’s May 1 letter, “Developer unfairly bashed.” My wife and I welcome McDonald’s to the neighborhood.

I find it ironic that the group who oppose McDonald’s hold up the Clementine as a shining example of how a business should be conducted in the neighborhood. Maybe if they visited the Clementine they would revisit their opinion. It looks more like downtown than a thriving business. It is mostly empty and it is filthy. There is trash everywhere and the windows look like they haven’t been cleaned since it opened.

But the Clementine was built and is owned by a Spokane icon, so it won’t be subjected to the same criticism as McDonald’s. Welcome to the neighborhood, McDonald’s.
