Tacoma City Council Opening

New District 2 Boundaries
With the election of Councilman Jake Fey to State Representative Jake Fey, there will be a vacancy on the Tacoma City Council come January.  To stay on top of the process, the City is expected to open the application process for interested parties on December 4th.

Three years ago, the City went through the same process with two seats vacated by then councilwomen Marilyn Strickland, now Mayor, and Julie Anderson, now Auditor.  This process gave us Councilmen David Boe and Ryan Mello.

As the Chamber continues to encourage advocacy on behalf of business, we also encourage our business people to take direct action through boards, elections, and appointments - like this one.

If you'd like more information on the process, please contact the Chamber at 253.627.2175 and ask for David.  You can also read The News Tribune's report on the process here:

The Council District in question is District 2, generally, Puget Park to North Union Avenue to 6th Avenue to Tacoma Avenue to I-5 and all of the Port and Northeast Tacoma.
