In the November election, we should consider electing new blood for mayor and city council positions in Spokane.
If we keep electing the same people, we will probably get as much or more of the following: homeless encampments, untreated mental illness and drug use, sanctuary city policies which enable more crime, road diets and unused bicycle paths, increased traffic and gridlock, and rough streets that are neglected. (There are still some streets that have never been paved!)
We will see more high-density housing projects with insufficient parking and little or no added arterial road capacity. There will probably be more red-light cameras set up to fine motorists who drive 30 miles per hour when no children are present. The incumbents have caused or enabled these problems, so why should we keep them in office?
There is no guarantee that new leaders will solve our city’s problems, but keeping the old ones will maintain the status quo or make things even worse. For guidance in the upcoming election, please go to webelievewevote.com.
