TACOMA: Leaders should be having a fit over park

We need to ask Seattle how they get city leaders and a mayor who care about open space.

In this day and age, saving green space in the middle of town is a no-brainier. If Pugnetti Park were in Seattle, the move by the Washington State Department of Transportation to close and sell it would be unheard of. But not in doormat Tacoma.

Tacoma leaders should be on the phone to the governor asking why billions of taxpayers’ dollars go to Seattle transportation projects and a small park at the entrance to the City of Tacoma is closed without a word of support.

We are truly the City of Destiny – destined to be the doormat of Seattle with our state and city leaders.

    You actually don’t understand why the Governor snubs Tacoma in favor of Seattle? She, as well as other politicians go where the big money is. For her, she will always pander to deep blue liberal money, i.e. Seattle and King County. Aided by our current City Council, Tacoma is slipping into blue territory but is not there and hopefully never will be. If you feel like a doormat, you are a door mat and will act as a doormat. Stand up and be a proud Tacoma resident. Don’t look to the north but within.
