City lawyer did his job

The Spokesman-Review

Recent coverage of City Attorney Rocky Treppiedi questions whether he has properly represented the public interest. I have worked with Mr. Treppiedi for about six years and for about two of those he worked directly with me managing the city’s Risk Management Department. During this time, I have come to know Rocky as a hard worker committed to an exceptional ethical and moral code.

When you hire a lawyer, you expect that lawyer to diligently represent you within the law – that is the lawyer’s job. Based on my direct experience with Rocky, I believe that is exactly what he does for the city of Spokane and its citizens.

Gavin J. Cooley

Chief financial officer, city of Spokane
