Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward has ordered flags at all City facilities to be lowered to half-staff to coincide with President Joseph R. Biden’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all state agency facilities be lowered immediately to honor victims of the attack at the United States Capitol on Friday, April 2.

“Spokane sends its deepest sympathies and condolences to all those touched by Friday’s attack on the United States Capitol,” said Woodward. “We join the country in mourning Capitol Police Officer William F. Evans who lost his life in this senseless attack.”

Flags will remain lowered until sundown on Tuesday, April 6. Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.
