Friday Quotes

Two of our favorite people were recently mentioned in the Inlander for separate causes that DTE is very stoked about. 

First, Center for Justice attorney Rick Eichstaedt was recently named the Spokane Riverkeeper by the international watchdog group, Waterkeeper Alliance - a grass roots organization headed by Robert Kennedy Jr.  We feel very confident that Rick is the best man for the job, and that the Spokane River is in good hands.

“We need to get out on the water, get eyes on the river and check things out," - Rick Eichstaedt

Second, Kitty Klitzke was quoted in the Inlander about her tireless work and dedication for rallying support for approval of the Sustainability Action Plan.  If you haven't yet submitted your comments, the vote has been pushed back to the City Council meeting on May 11, giving you more time to do so

“I am disturbed by some folks on the City Council’s unwillingness to separate sound science and logically connected facts from the distorted views of special-interest groups fighting desperately for relevance in a community that has progressed past their outdated agendas,” - Kitty Klitzke
