Keven Rojecki, a firefighter for the City of SeaTac, is formally launching his bid for the Tacoma City Council with a kickoff event tonight at — wait for it, wait for it – Engine House No. 9.


Rojecki, 40, is running for the at-large position currently held by Mike Lonergan, who is barred by term limits from running again. Victoria Woodards, chairwoman of the Metro Parks Tacoma board, has also announced a run for the seat.


Rojecki is a legislative liaison and district representative for the Washington State Council of Firefighters. He also serves as the vice chairman of the Washington State Gambling Commission, a position Gov. Chris Gregoire appointed him to in 2006.


Rojecki said he is running on a record of public safety and community service.


“I value safe neighborhoods and an economic climate where business and working families thrive,” Rojecki said in a statement. “The citizens of Tacoma have every right to expect efficiency, accountability, and transparency in their government and I’m ready for the challenge.”


The kickoff event is tonight from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Engine House No. 9, 611 N. Pine Street, Tacoma.


Here is the full press release.
