I have no position on where the new stadium should be built. But the voters sure did. By a 2-1 margin, Spokane voters told leaders to build the stadium at the Albi site.
This was an advisory vote but the message could not be clearer.
Jim Allen’s article, “Stadium decision reverts to school board” (Nov. 11, 2018), makes the weak argument that elected leaders should ignore the vote and do as they please. If leaders are not willing to take the advice of the electorate in a landslide situation, when will they?
If this vote is ignored, why will anyone take future advisory votes seriously? It would be better to not ask in the first place.
