I recently attended a forum with the candidates for Pierce County Executive hosted by the City Club of Tacoma. As a long time City Club member and past president, I was proud of how the debate was professionally facilitated by the League of Women Voters and how informative the debate turned out.
While all four of the executive candidates have compelling reasons for why they believe that they are the most qualified to be the next County Executive, beyond the opening remarks, I was most impressed by the vision and level of knowledge presented by Calvin Goings. Goings offered more specific proposals than the other candidates.
In a time when our economy needs an Executive who knows how to quickly jump start our local economy, Goings was the only candidate who detailed a plan to strengthen our local economy backed up by 18 years of hands on experience as an elected official. I encourage anyone who was not at the debate to visit Goings’ website to see the level of thought and experience behind his progressive plans as Executive.
As a side note, Goings is also the only Executive candidate endorsed by the Tacoma/Pierce County Association of Realtors. Having interviewed all the candidates, Realtors endorsed Calvin Goings as the best candidate to promote growth in our economy and get our housing market back on track.
