I don’t want to sound holier than thou when it comes to spelling. I can never remember if “I” comes before “E” or “E” comes before “I.”
But I have usually been pretty good about spelling my own name correctly (there’s a “g” in there someplace.)
Not so Tacoma City Council candidate Beckie Summers Kirby (note the spelling of her first name and last name.) Beckie is a candidate for the council seat from District 5 and sent a mailing into homes in the district recently called “Teamwork.”
“We made progress because true community leaders were willing to step forward and make things happen. Leaders like Becky Sommers Kirby.”
In case voters didn’t catch it, the brochure then spells both names correctly in big type just to the right.
She will face Joe Longeran, I mean Lonergan, in November.
