No honest leadership

Why is the city Of Spokane paying $180,000 to an ineffective chief of police instead of firing him outright? Why is the Mayor David Condon baffled at the outcome of his trying to hide everything under the table? Why is there a continuous parade of fools and idiots through Spokane City Hall and council chambers? Why do the citizens with good intention keep electing such a poor cross-section of humanity?

The answer is the Gypsy curse is active and functioning well. No one has resolved the historical missteps that the city has made, and the negative energy continues to grow. It is either that or there is something in the air of the council chambers that precludes rational thought. Either way, it is time to clear the air in City Hall and eliminate some of the fools currently breathing on the upper floors by showing them the door.

Start with the mayor and the used-to-be chief, and work your way down until you find someone who is working for the citizens. There are good hard-working people in all of the city departments. It is too bad there is no one capable of providing honest leadership.
