The Master Builders Association of Pierce County today announced a list of candidates it’s endorsing for state and county offices. Among those winning the organization’s approval: Pierce County Council candidates Dan Roach (Republican, District 1) and Rick Talbert (Democrat, District 5).
The association represents more than 825 builders and other companies in the county. Because its endorsement often comes with sizable campaign contributions, the MBA is considered the 800-pound gorilla of Pierce County politics. Or has the housing slump made it the 600-pound gorilla?
