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.
