Dick Muri has represented his district and the citizens of Pierce County well while serving on the County Council. His accomplishments during his tenure include a balanced county budget and a “rainy day” reserve fund, cutting waste and inefficiencies within county government, promoting local jobs by easing rules for employers, and preservation of hundreds of acres of wilderness so as to provide for habitat protection and recreational uses.

Being a 22-year Air Force veteran, Muri understands veterans issues and is committed to protecting veterans and their families. He is also very aware of the significance of Joint Base Lewis-McChord and its contribution to the South Sound economy.

During his time on the County Council, Muri has always been available to his constituents and willing to hear their views on the various issues. He would continue to represent us and the 10th District well in Washington, D.C..
