Introduction to Larry Bamonte’s open letter…


Good evening, Netizens...


I have not met former detective Tony Bamonte although I have spoken with him by phone a number of times. My thoughts regarding his involvement in matters relating to the City of Spokane and its our city's history of malfeasance and corruption are that he has repeatedly proven himself above reproach, distinguished and highly professional in all ways during his 25 years of experience, not to mention 8 years of experience as a City of Spokane Police Officer.


Early last week, I received a series of messages from former detective Ron Wright, a portion of which I have already addressed, which also included a message from Tony Bamonte which was hand-delivered to our current Mayor David Condon and current Spokane City Attorney Nancy Isserlis. It is a lengthy message, including several important policy and procedural statements, many of which have been addressed in the past. I most strenuously encourage everyone to read this document, which follows, and carefully consider all that Tony Bamonte has to say.


By all means, please feel free to comment and/or add your thoughts to this scholarly and historically-significant document.
