A Redmond institution is cut to the quick with staff layoffs and the announcement that there won't be any more "hard news" for the “Redmond Spokesman.”
Mayor George Eendicott says he wrote a protest letter to “The Bulletin” the publisher of the Redmond Spokesman, after they announced the changes for the only Redmond newspaper. "My issue is: they've laid off 2 of the folks that work there out of the 5. One lady has been there 30 years, so they repaid her loyalty by laying her off, so I’m upset about that too. She actually is an excellent reporter. She’s a true reporter from the old school that just reports the news, doesn't editorialize."
Endicott says he finds it hard enough to get news about Redmond out and now he feels they've lost the "Redmond beat."
