Of the following issues below, which are you aware of and what would you say is your level of knowledge on the topic?
Pierce County government recently sued a private citizen in an attempt to prevent that individual from filing a referendum against a proposed new building. I opposed that lawsuit and successfully fought to have the county drop it.
The Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney has recently come under fire for alleged misconduct. Two whistleblowers brought the issue to light, and a number of lawsuits have stemmed from their allegations.
The County Executive drew up a proposal to build a new government building in Tacoma’s Lincoln Neighborhood, however the financing plan to pay for it was based on what I believed were unrealistic assumptions. The proposal was put to a vote of the people where it was defeated.
Over the past several months, the Pierce County Council held a series of public meetings to hear from the public and other county departments regarding the 2016 budget. The final budget proposal passed November 16 and is awaiting approval by the County Executive.
One of the biggest and most universally-supported provisions in the proposed 2016 budget for Pierce County is the creation of a new property crimes unit in the County Sheriff’s department. Because property crimes are the number one type of crime in Pierce County, I proposed the budget amendment that created the new unit.
