Todd Iverson is the best choice for Pierce County Council, District 7.
The Port of Tacoma is our economic engine; 40 percent of all jobs in our county are tied to the Port of Tacoma in some way. The council should do more to partner with the port and find ways to expand services that lead to increased economic investment in our county.
The council has been in a cut-and-run mentality that results in fewer services and frustration to people. Iverson, a working longshoreman who knows the port “from the water up,” is the candidate best suited to work with local leaders to create and keep jobs. His strong commitment to working families will help the council have a human concern, rather than just business and banking, in its decisions.
Iverson is endorsed by many local and state elected officials, including state Sen. Derek Kilmer and Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland.
