Pierce County Council Joins Opposition to Tacoma's Prop 1

The Pierce County Council joined the City Councils of University Place and Lakewood as opposed to Tacoma’s Prop 1, a ballot measure solely within Tacoma that would increase taxes on residents and businesses of their jurisdictions (outside Tacoma).

The County Council voted five in favor and one opposed (with one absent) to oppose Tacoma’s Prop 1.

The TNT quotes Councilman Dan Roach: “Prop. 1 is ‘worse than taxation without representation’ because half of Tacoma Power’s customers live outside of the city limits, cannot vote on the issue and have no legal recourse.”
