We the undersigned Faith Leaders and Leaders of Conscience are greatly concerned by the Spokane Regional Health Board’s actions concerning Dr. Lutz.

We require truthful and clear reasons for why, in the middle of a pandemic, irreconcilable differences are enough to remove a health officer?

How does the Board plan to guarantee the public receives scientific and not politicized guidance?

What is the process by which SRHD will be transparent to the citizens?
We are monitoring this situation closely.
