Letters for Nov. 6, 2023

Homeless population under Woodward and Plese

Regarding the Letter to the Editor on Oct. 30 (“Don’t become San Francisco”), I’m afraid if Nadine Woodward and Kim Plese are elected, Spokane’s homeless people will be pushed around from place to place for the next four years with little, or no, attempt at a solution.

Whether you agree or not, these people do deserve better. So do we. Please vote for Lisa Brown and Betsy Wilkerson. Thank you.

Jim Jones


End this hapless affair!

How long can we bear an unqualified mayor

Before all the stress makes her pull out her hair?

Lisa Brown has the chops

To pull out the stops!

Vote like you care! End this hapless affair!

Jim Price


Thankful for candidate transparency

I’m thankful to the candidates in the Nov. 7 general election voters pamphlet who submitted their picture, background, goals and contact information, whether opposed or unopposed. I appreciate them being so upfront, honest and connected to the voters.

For those who chose not to submit that information about themselves, the message that resonates is: “Don’t bother me or worry about my qualifications or what I think. Just vote for me.”
