Tim Eyman's latest venture to bankrupt Spokane - Initiative 1033

Initiative 1033 would further bankrupt Spokane. They tried this in Colorado and it took them years to undo, and not until communities teetered on the verge of destruction.

Hey, Don't forget that Mike Fagan is running for city council. He is Tim Eyman's right hand man. I am sure Mr. Eyman will be happy to have an inside guy in city hall. Can you imagine the phone calls between those two, if Fagan were elected? Fagan can report firsthand Spokane's destruction to his buddy, Tim.

Fagan's opponent is Amber Waldref. If she is in your district, please consider voting for her. Here is her site.

The union is endorsing Amber and is joining the WSCFF to ask for your vote AGAINST Intitiative 1033.

Local 29 is also endorsing Jon Snyder for city council. I've hung out with Jon lately. He's a smart guy. Here's his website.

If you are in Karen Kearney's district, the union is supporting her as well. Here is her website.
She has been a friend to public safety in Spokane for a very long time.

fire press release

ISSUING OFFICER: Craig Cornelius / Battalion Chief
INCIDENT TYPE: Structure Fire
INCIDENT ADDRESS: 1847 E. Marshall
CITY: Spokane
ZIP: 99207

NARRATIVE: This evening, September 25, 2009 at 16:15 hours, the Spokane Fire Department dispatched 7 fire apparatus and 2 chief officers to a reported structure fire located at 1847 E. Marshall.

Engine 7 responding from the Fire Station 7 located at 1st and Magnolia, was the first apparatus to arrive. Acting Lieutenant Jeremy Morash reported that he had a four unit apartment complex with heavy smoke and fire showing from one of the upper floor apartments. He quickly made assignments for the other responding fire companies while he and his crew made an immediate attack on the upper floor fire.

Incoming fire companies performed a rapid primary search of the building, extended additional hose lines into the apartment and provided ventilation to assist firefighters working inside. An aggressive attack by initial crews knocked the main body of the fire down within five minutes of Engine 7's arrival. Crews were on the scene a total of 2 ½ hours making sure the fire was out.

There were no injuries at this fire. Two adults living in the apartment were not home when the fire started. The fire caused significant damage to the one unit, and the two adults who are now displaced are being assisted by the local Red Cross.

Tenants in the building's other apartments will continue to stay on site as damage was primarily confined to the one unit. The fire is still under investigation at this time and a fire cause will be determined after all evidence and interviews have been completed and reviewed.

PROBABLE CAUSE: This fire is still under investigation.
DAMAGE EXTENT: Heavy fire and smoke damage to one apartment unit.
MUTUAL AID: None Given
