I voted for Mike Lonergan for Pierce County assessor-treasurer because I am confident he will do an outstanding job. This office has been in a turmoil for several years because of poor judgment and leadership ability. We need a qualified person like Lonergan to restore order and good management to this office.

Lonergan has demonstrated leadership skills developed during 12 years as executive director of the Tacoma Rescue Mission; this will put him in good stead to manage the important office of county assessor-treasurer.

Lonergan has the support of elected officials in Pierce County and has received the sole, unanimous endorsement of the Pierce County Republican Party. I’m certain others will appreciate, as I do, his stand for the rights of the individual and for constitutional limits on the power of government.
