Eastern Washington Voters has endorsed Randy Ramos for Spokane City Council over that of incumbent Republic Mike Fagan for the 1st City Council district. All it takes is a google search to see that Fagan has been an embarrassment to Spokane. He has been widely criticized in the national media for his crazy ideas and telling parents not to immunize their children against deadly diseases like measles.
On the other hand, Randy Ramos is a level head guy who wants to focus on recreating more jobs and opportunities for people in Spokane. These are serious issues that affect our City. In contrast, Fagan is constantly distracted from the needs of Spokane by his imaginations of United Nation’s plots and the dangers of bikini baristas.
Randy’s practical focus probably has a lot to do with having to work hard for a living, understanding what it is like to have to pay bills, and go to work every day. Randy is a painter by trade and works seasonally as a recruiter for the local Indian colleague. Randy Ramos of Hillyard will represent Spokane well.

Mike Fagan‘s eighth man circus has caused another ruckus. I support what Councilman Jon Snyder wrote about it. Still, there is a lot of confusion about what free speech really is. The City Council did not ban any words the other day, and it is hyperbola for KXLY to claim that it did. A TV station should have a better grasp of the legislative process and what the word banning really means.
If I want to, it is within my personal 1st amendment rights to ask you to stop talking. I most likely would not do that, because it is a bit overbearing and disrespectful. However, it is also not even what the Spokane City Council did the other day.
I might, however, ask you not to use a word that I consider offense or respectful. Freedom of speech is not restricted simply because someone is advised not to use a word. It is their right to ask you, and it is your right to ignore their request if you choose.
Restrictions only happen when you are actually denied the right to expressed yourself. Read the rest of this entry

(By Greg Gower) Well it’s been another hot summer, here in Spokane, and once again our neighborhoods are being invaded by hordes of half-naked, sweaty, lawn care specialists and pool boys. Every year this happens and every year I’m shocked at their brazen display of flesh! Right out in the open, and in front of our children no less! It’s a good thing Spokane City Councilman Mike Fagan is on guard.
“Anal Cleft,” says Mike Fagan
The glistening torso of a bronzed young man is tantalizing disgusting enough, but, in the past few years, these youths have been wearing their shorts lower and lower, resulting in the exposure of anal cleft. I didn’t know the technical term before, but now we can thank Fagan, for naming anal cleft as the problem it really is. Mike Fagan is a dedicated, conservative leader, who knows this is one of those rare occasions when government should step in and regulate our lives. Read the rest of this entry

A few years ago, Tim Eyman and Mike Fagan started a successful initiative effort to require a two-thirds majority in the Washington State Legislature for the passage of new revenue proposals. Every two years Eyman has relaunched similar initiatives in response to the Washington State Legislature threatening to undo his initiatives. Now the two-thirds majority movement has gone local.
Last week the Spokane City Council voted in favor of placing a similar two-thirds rule on the local February ballot. This measure was supported by Mike Fagan, a City Councilman and frequent co-sponsor of Eyman initiatives to reduce state revenue needed for parks, education, environmental protection, and other services from the State of Washington, according to the Spokesman Review.

Nancy McLaughlin candidate for the Washington State Legislature was caught faking the support of the well-liked Ben Stuckart. Stuckart was a bit angry, and he wants to make it loud and clear that he does NOT support Republican Nancy McLaughlin in her bid for a 3rd Legislative District Washington State Senate seat against Democrat Andy Billig.
Spokane City Council President Ben Stuckart said Thursday that he didn’t give City Councilwoman Nancy McLaughlin permission to use a picture of him on a campaign mailer for state Senate. Read the rest of this entry
