Shooting the messenger

It’s obvious now that the businessmen and politicians (here’s looking at you, Mayor Woodward) do not appreciate having a truth-teller like Dr. Lutz as the Spokane Health Officer.

Knowing this, why would we trust the interim health officer, or the permanent one we will get eventually? Clearly they will be required to put a happy face on the COVID situation. For ourselves, we will continue to eat at home and buy online until there is a vaccine. We feel a lot less safe in Spokane now.
