SPOKANE, Wash. — Protestors held a ‘Right to Work’ rally in Riverfront Park Wednesday afternoon, which saw Washington gubernatorial candidate and anti-tax activist Tim Eyman and Eastern Washington Representative Matt Shea arrive to show their support.

Spokane County’s elected officials want to reopen, as well, but are largely following Governor Inslee’s state guidelines.
