I am John Simpson (email, 253-414-4678), and I am a candidate for Position 5 on the Lakewood City Council. As a Pierce College history professor, a former member of Lakewood’s Redevelopment Advisory Board, a former (pro tempore) City Council Member and a retired Air Force officer, I believe I have the experience and knowledge to serve Lakewood’s citizens well.
A well-designed and balanced budget, strong relations with Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Camp Murray, promotion and recognition of educational excellence within the Clover Park School District, well maintained parks and recreation areas, the continued economic development of the Woodbrook/Tillicum areas and the strong promotion of business within Lakewood are priorities for me.
Lakewood is a wonderful city in which to live and work, and I seek your support in furthering this belief. I ask for your support and vote in August and November.
