In the Pierce County Executive race we have three candidates with broad policy experience dealing with all phases of government from public safety to land use; from transportation to budgeting; from housing to jobs. We also have two candidates with significant, full-time management experience. Only one candidate, Mike Lonergan, has both qualifications.
Mike Lonergan was elected to the Tacoma City Council by a 2 to 1 margin and re-elected with an even greater margin. He did exactly what he said he would do, and clearly Tacoma is moving in a positive direction. He has led the way in establishing an ethics board, Internal Auditor and Government Performance Committee which he chairs. I‚Äôve observed his other actions in consensus building and ethical leadership over his years on the Council.
The elected leaders of Pierce County cities and towns have overwhelmingly placed their trust in Mike Lonergan‚Ä¶ they have chosen him to chair the Pierce County Regional Council for an unprecedented three consecutive terms. These are Democrats, Republicans and Independents from every part of the county. Let’s join them as we together make Mike our FIRST CHOICE for County Executive.
