Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward has ordered flags at all City facilities to be lowered to half-staff to coincide with President Donald Trump’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all public facilities be lowered until Wednesday, Jan. 13, in remembrance of Capitol Police Officers Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood.

“Capitol Police Officers Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood dedicated their lives to defending the Capitol and protecting all who serve,” said Mayor Woodward. “The Spokane community sends its deepest condolences to their family and friends.”

We encourage anyone with a flag outside of their home or business to join us in this recognition to honor Officers Sicknick and Howard.
