Spokane needs French

Since my election two years ago, I’ve worked to help Spokane become a place of great opportunity; a city where people would come expecting to find career paths, solid blue-collar jobs and a growing infrastructure. And to help Spokane grow beyond a service-based business model.

There’s a reason I knew what my goal would be.

Before being elected to the House, I had been part of a work group assembled by Spokane County Commissioner Al French that consisted of government officials, developers, engineers, airport executives and community members. As a state representative, I have been tasked to provide the group with state resources as part of French’s effort to develop a manufacturing, institutional and production-supply business base.

The results are Caterpillar, Exotic Metals, aircraft paint and maintenance facilities, and private investment in railroad. These projects exist because of the involvement of French, and additional projects are coming.

I don’t agree with all of French’s political positions, but I am sure of what he does bring to Spokane County: business, development and jobs. In order to accomplish these goals, we need French in office for one more term.

It’s not about politics. It’s about what Spokane needs.

State Rep. Jeff Holy
