Public awareness campaign warns voters of Spokane rail proposition

August 22, 2017

"“We are really concerned about the city being distracted from some of the key priorities we need to be emphasizing,” said Michael Cathcart, executive director of Better Spokane.


“Roads are not well maintained; some crime is left somewhat unchecked and we see city council leaders who are not necessarily concerned with making Spokane most attractive for jobs or for people to come to the community.”

Cathcart continued, “I think it’s a real disservice to the community when a measure is advocated by city council members when we have priorities already being ignored.”

“The machinist union feel this is not the most reasonable alternative,” said Warren. “Family-wage jobs and the environment are important, but we need to do this in a more constructive way… what is practical and makes sense for people in the community.”


The Committee to Protect Spokane’s Economy launched its campaign against Proposition 2 on Thursday, August 17.

“We’re going to be working hard over the next two-and-a-half months to educate Spokane voters on some of the negative intended or unintended ramifications, and to make sure they are informed voters when they cast their ballots starting in October in the fall election,” said Cathcart."
