Newcomer proud of Spokane

As a recent transplant to this fine city, I was a bit wary of what I had heard - rough people, crumbling infrastructure and high-crime. Spokane was a “city that almost made it.”

What I have come to find is a town rich with community, people who want to help the hurting and a reasonable cost of living with all the perks of a big city with the beauty of nature surrounding it. Spokane has its problems like any large city in America does, but I truly am impressed with this place.

I thank God for the opportunity to live here. Take pride, fellow Spokanites, and let’s make sure to keep our city a hidden gem.

Chris Johnson
