I find it amazing that the City Council of Spokane has a police contract that hasn’t been settled for going on four years. You know, those officers with families that are expected to go out, serve and protect the citizens without even the proper protective equipment.
Amazing what the council priorities appear to be. They can find $71,911 for wages (then add in benefits and pensions so it’s actually much more than that) to hire someone to speak for them but overlook the very people that keep us safe?
With citizens struggling with the affects of this pandemic, crime and domestic violence going up and the needs of the community exponentially growing daily, we have to question the prudence of use of taxpayer funds for this. I was under the impression that voters elected the mayor and council to speak for themselves on behalf of the citizens. It appears none of them know how.
Shame on all of them, they don’t deserve the trust of the voters that elected them.
