1st Scorecard of Tacoma Council

The Chamber is exercising its voice for business.

Displayed is the first ever SCORECARD (click here for best image) of the votes local officials have made consistent with support of businesses in our community.  The Chamber seeks business and government cooperation for economic and quality of life issues.

Although Scorecards will eventually be reported for local and state elected and appointed officials, the first Scorecard is of votes by the Tacoma City Councilmembers for the First Quarter 2012.

“Families flock to successful communities where job opportunities are abundant and there is a high quality of life. The purpose of our scorecard is to inform and educate people about how well our elected officials are representing their views,” said Chamber President and CEO Tom Pierson. “As an active Chamber with many vocal members, we look forward to issuing regular evaluations so our entire community - including employers, employees and customers - understands where their civil leaders stand on matters affecting all of us.”

Everything we do - from working collaboratively with public or private organizations to identifying and expressing the priorities of companies and small businesses in the Puget Sound area - ties back to our overall mission.

Let us know what you think of the Scorecard as an accountability tool for local officials.
