Spokane Mayor Nadine Woodward has ordered flags at all City facilities to remain lowered at half-staff to coincide with President Joseph R. Biden’s directive that state and U.S. flags at all state agency facilities remain lowered in remembrance of U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings, of Florida.

“Congressman Hastings proudly represented the people of southeast Florida for 28 years in Florida’s 23rd and 20th Congressional Districts,” said Mayor Woodward. “We encourage anyone with a flag outside their home or business to join us in remembering Congressman Hastings. Flags should remain at half-staff until Wednesday, April 7.”

Rep. Hastings passed away today, April 6. He was 84.
