In Brief: George McGrath


For weeks I’ve had a burning question. I’ve attended a couple of Spokane City Council meetings and I’ve noticed a pattern. George McGrath always has something to say.

Before the May 2nd meeting I approached him with a simple question: “George, how do you prepare for city council meetings?”

I had a lot of romantic notions involving the breakfast of champions, the sharpening of his wit on a sacred Spokane stone or even a traditional dinner spot.

He responded quite simply:

“I get ready and give myself time enough to see how they’ll shaft us tonight,” McGrath said.

Before the start of each meeting you can see him speed reading through the 3-ring binder that can be found on the desk before entering the council chambers. It’s called the Citizens Packet.

He continued, “It’s all smoke and mirrors and gibberish.”
