Breean Beggs steps down from Center For Justice…

Good morning, Netizens...

Prior to the arrival of The Center For Justice we, the citizens of Spokane, didn't really have an advocate in our corner to help us when we ran afoul of the local government or high-end vested interests. Perhaps if the Center for Justice had existed long ago, such malignancies as River Park Square or the travesty of the Otto Zehm and other murders by the Spokane Police Department's failed policies might never have occurred.

Once the Center for Justice was formed and Breean Beggs assumed the role of chief catalyst, ordinary people had a strong advocate in their corner, a litigator who would fight for the common man, and serve for positive social change.

This week Breean Beggs notified the Center For Justice's board and staff that he will be submitting his resignation, and thus ending his relationship with the Center. He leaves the door open to various other interests, including assuming public office.

Suffice it to say, we have lost a dynamic, powerful voice for the general public. We can hope that another person will step forward in the vacuum Breean Beggs leaves in his wake.
