General James Mattis of Richland donated his time and considerable local clout to help with the folks who put together a quick :30 YouTube video touting the importance of visiting local businesses and restaurants in Richland and around the Tri-Cities:

"Hello fellow Tri-Citians, this is Jim Mattis and we're going to get through this Coronavirus..." the video begins with the Richland native standing in front of his beloved Spudnut Shop.

"Lets all pull together, but stay apart, while we pull together and keep our businesses alive."
