I am writing to share my total dismay in Mayor Nadine Woodward’s comment regarding the firing of Dr. Bob Lutz. I voted for her — however, I will not do so in the next election.
I thought she’d be a breath of fresh air to the political climate of Spokane, but that one comment was indescribably callous. It told me she is influenced by the businesses in town over the lives of people in our community.
I’m a recently retired RN, and cannot imagine the stress my former co-workers continue to endure, let alone what the families of relatives killed due to the COVID virus must feel like. Actions usually speak louder than words. Unfortunately, not in this scenario. I find her words an embarrassment to the great city of Spokane.
I’m still holding out hope that Dr. Lutz will be reinstated, and that the health board will undergo necessary changes so this does not happen again. Couldn’t be worse timing, and that too, is shameful.
