Big Debate Night in University Place

The University Place-Fircrest Division of the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber held its debate last night at the Curtis High School Auditorium with Division President Deanna Cleaveland acting as moderator -- her final action as division president since her term expired today.

All eight of the candidates running for the University Place City Council discussed issues ranging from attracting new businesses and retaining current ones to the Town Center project and the "one quality they will be looking for in a new city manager" (current manager Bob Jean has announced his retirement).

An audience of over 80 people watched the candidates debate and spoke with them afterward at the reception. Photos of the event will be posted here shortly.

The City of University Place will be posting the video of this entire event soon at this link.
