Lakewood Council Unanimously Opposes Tacoma's Prop 1

The City of Lakewood has become the second city whose Council has voted unanimously to oppose Tacoma’s Prop. 1, a tax on utilities to fix potholes in Tacoma’s residential areas.

“It’s very unlikely that this (Lakewood) council would look to the cities of Puyallup, DuPont or Tacoma to fund our own residential road issues,” (Deputy Mayor Jason) Whalen said, according to The News Tribune, Oct. 22, 2013.

Lakewood Council members noted that several chambers of commerce (which included the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber), voiced support for their resolution in opposition.
