Todd Iverson is our standout choice for Position 7 on the Pierce County Council. He first came to our attention several years ago as a panelist for a public campaign funding forum. He was, and is, articulate, dynamic and knowledgeable and stands up for his principles, which go hand in hand with ours.

He has a darling little boy named Gus for whose bright future he is fighting. He takes time to care about people.

His issues are our issues: creating jobs and partnering with the Port of Tacoma; smart growth vs. uncontrolled development; investing in public safety; estoring cuts to critical services; reducing traffic; and balancing shoreline management.

He’s young and supercharged with energy and already has an established record of leadership.

Iverson sees the big picture, short range and long range. He is just what we need to rev up the Pierce County Council, the engine behind the development of Pierce County.
