Salvation Army Worker: Boss Was Concerned with Building, ‘Not the People'

A former Salvation Army employee who sat in staff meetings leading up to the 2013 Market Street collapse that killed seven people testified Tuesday that a high-ranking official with the nonprofit “was concerned with the damage to the roof, damage to the building, not the people.”

Edward Strudwick, a former dispatch supervisor for the Salvation Army, said he grew concerned after hearing discussions by his superiors during meetings in April and May about the store at 22nd and Market and the demolition going on next door.
