Albi scam

Doug Bacon was on target in his letter of 12/27 regarding the Albi “scam.” It’s an incredibly foolish plan proposed by our district “educators.” What a waste of taxpayer dollars.

It also showcased a greater problem in local leadership: a horrendous lack of common sense. Examples: a Riverfront Park remodel with few concrete plans and unknown costs, a “road diet” reduction in traffic lanes that will hurt businesses and push vehicles into neighborhoods, unfinished street repairs, a city council that imagines itself having influence and authority throughout the country, rocks for the homeless to sleep on to coerce them to find others places to sleep, a school district that thinks change, any change, is progress, and the list goes on and on.

From the smallest towns to the biggest cities, to Spokane’s City Hall, Olympia and Washington, D.C., our government and its branches are losing sight of the meaning of representation, and we’re all paying for it.
