As residents of Spokane, we like many are concerned about the well-being of our city.
We have already lost four restaurants since the shutdown, including Tomato Street, downtown. So if this continues on, we might lose more, which is bad for our economy. All businesses are essential.
Times are hard. We can not afford to be closed much longer. This is affecting not only the city but the people. Their livelihoods are at stake, because it is their means of support. These entrepreneurs and small businesses are the cornerstone of our country, and the heart and soul of our city.
