Hamilton says he misspoke

Spokane City Council candidate Mark Hamilton says he misspoke at Monday's council meeting.

Testifying about the proposed pedestrian bridge that would link the WSU-Spokane campus with East Sprague Avenue over the BNSF tracks, Hamilton said: "We don't want a handle put on a broken cup. We don't need to feed the dying horse in the U District and hook it up to a new cart. We've got to use our senses."

Hamilton says he meant to say that "We need to feed the dying horse ..."

His position on the pedestrian bridge, he said, is that it should only be built if the city invests other resources to boost the area south of the BSNF tracks.
