Latah Valley is supported by Maggie Yates

Recently A supporter of Maggie wrote an LTE in the Spokesman Review. Read it here: 

"I am a longtime resident of the Grandview/Thorpe neighborhood along the Latah Valley and U.S. 195 corridor. This corridor has experienced explosive growth without concurrent infrastructure improvements necessary to support this development.

For more than 20 years, our elected officials have promised to construct the needed infrastructure and dedicate critical funding to support more development in this area, but they have failed. Current residents of Latah Valley navigate dangerous roads, wonder if fire protection and emergency services will arrive in time, witness the erosion of wildlife corridors, agricultural land, and wetlands, and are subject to having no schools located in this area. Without any plan or vision for the future, Al French championed some of the first developments in this area when on the Spokane City Council. Now as a county commissioner, he has refused to have a conversation about the area’s current challenges, much less attempt to rectify them. Time and time again French has put the interests of developers over his constituents and the region’s long-term wellbeing. I am hopeful this will change soon in the upcoming election.

I am supporting Maggie Yates for Spokane County Commissioner. Maggie has already met with community members in our area and taken the time to listen, understand and take action to support our community. She understands the need to plan for growth and affordable housing in the context of infrastructure, land use, and the conservation of our natural resources. Join me in casting a ballot for our future."
