I am honored to join Helen Engle and Thelma Gilmur, co-founders of the Tacoma Audubon Society, and others in voting for Jerry Thorpe for Metro Parks Board Position 5.

On two occasions I have had the opportunity to hear Thorpe debate his opponent. I believe Thorpe will be a conscientious board member and will listen to all viewpoints before deciding what is best for our community.

As a former teacher, Thorpe understands the value of parks and healthy neighborhoods. He  will thoroughly examine and research the financial directives that must be taken to sustain and grow our parks.
