The Tacoma City Council delivered a stinging blow to the majority of Tacoma citizens when Jake Fey, Ryan Mello, Lauren Walker and Mayor Marilyn Strickland agreed that citizen phone calls, voice mails, e-mails and verbal messages strongly supported the actions of the governor of Arizona.
This citizen majority support for Arizona ties in with a 70 percent national citizen’s support for Arizona. The majority of the council took it upon themselves to ignore the majority input from the citizens of Tacoma because they did not feel the poll was a true measure of the issue and did not conform to their thoughts.
Council members were appointed or elected into office four months ago to listen to Tacoma citizens and take care of Tacoma’s business. Meddling in Arizona business is not what they were appointed or elected to do.
If they cannot or will not confine yourselves to Tacoma’s problems (and we have many of them), then they have no business being on the council and should resign. Then they would be free to take their personal agendas outside the council chambers and stop wasting taxpayer money.
