Steve Vermillion is the best choice for the at-large seat on the Puyallup City Council. He is endorsed by the Pierce County Professional Firefighters IAFF 726 FF and the Puyallup Police Association. He is endorsed by longtime residents and business owners, citizens in their mid-20s and citizens in their mid-80s, women and men.

Vermillion brings the complete package: an open mind; willingness to work with all council members and citizens; concrete, practical ideas on how to improve the city; and a background with a wide range of meaningful experiences that actually apply to the position of a council member.

He supports initiative and referendum for citizens, is a fiscal conservative who supports consolidating city services into city property, and he will securitize the city budget to make sure we are getting the most for our money without raising taxes.

He was dedicated to serving our country for more than 25 years; to his wife of more than 40 years and his children and grandchildren; and to serving the citizens of Puyallup for the next four years on the City Council.

A vote for Vermillion is a vote for your voice to be heard in Puyallup.
