Tacoma City Council District 3 Race Gets Going
The race for Tacoma's District 3 City Council seat is getting pretty crowded. Current District 3 Councilmember Lauren Walker reaches the end of her term this year, and campaigns for her would-be replacements seem to be kicking off left and right.
This week we received announcements from "Hilltop community activist" Whitney Brady and "US Army veteran and neighborhood leader" Valentine Smith. That's in addition to the announcements we've already seen from "community leader and transit champion" Justin Leighton, "teacher, father, and community leader" Thomas McCarthy, and "community organizer, family man, and advocate for Tacoma" Keith Blocker.

Other names have already come and gone. Korbett Mosesly's campaign page now points to his wife's school board campaign. Robert Hill, while listed with the PDC in this race, does not appear to have a current campaign page at this time.
This could get interesting... Anyone else want to throw their hat in the ring?
