By Hunter George, Pierce County Communications Director
Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy will host a “Budget 101” discussion in Lakewood on Monday, Oct. 25. It will mark the seventh of her “Budget 101” discussions aimed at talking with residents about the county’s revenues, expenditures, priorities, challenges and opportunities. She hosted six briefings between Sept. 27 and Oct. 13 in Graham, Bonney Lake, South Hill, the Midland/Summit area, Gig Harbor and Tacoma. A Lakewood resident asked her to host one in that area as well, which prompted the addition to the schedule. The Oct. 25 meeting will be held from 6:30 – 8 p.m. at the Lakewood Community Center, 9112 Lakewood Dr. SW.
