Woodward could do better

A leader with the understanding of the required professionalism of an elected office would have, upon the firing of Dr. Bob Lutz in the middle of a pandemic, stepped up to reassure the people of Spokane.

Instead, Mayor Woodward’s snarky remark — “this is the best news I’ve heard” — certainly lacked any comfort for us or competency for a person leading our city government. It showed her putting money and her own future re-election via wealth and business interests as a priority. The health of city residents who elected her is obviously secondary in this situation.

We can all do better including our mayor!
