Candidates for District 3 council race talk about development in Tacoma

Lauren Walker, the Tacoma City Councilmember who represents District 3 (central Tacoma), runs into the end of her term limits this year, and will be stepping down from her seat on the council dais.

The race to replace her is one of the more crowded council races we've seen in Tacoma in recent years, with seven names appearing on the primary ballot for District 3 voters to choose from. When the dust settles and the primary votes are counted next month, only two of those names will advance to the November election. The News Tribune's Kate Martin interviewed six of the candidates (Robert Hill, with his multiple convictions and restraining orders, was left out). The question: "How do you think Tacoma should plan for future growth?" 

Whether or not you live in District 3, it's a question worth considering. Martin summarizes the candidate's answers - do you agree with any of them?

Whom the News Tribune supports I oppose therefore Robert Hill got my vote hands down for every candidate position available even as a write in candidate.

People go to wars and die so you can sustain your ability to vote and sustain our Democracy.  Please take it seriously next time.

rhtcc is right.  Had it not been for the US seizing precious beer recipes from the Germans in WWII, the US would not enjoy it’s current micro brew boom.  Pretty sure there was a draft by the way.
