Business Alliance PAC Congratulates Its Winning Endorsed Candidates

The Tacoma-Pierce County Business Alliance Political Action Committee is pleased to announce results of the candidates endorsed by the PAC for the 2013 General Election.

Comprised of business leaders from a variety of industries in the region, it is the mission of the Business Alliance PAC to promote candidates who support economic growth, jobs creation and business interests in the local area.

After interviews with candidates for Tacoma City Council and Port of Tacoma Commission, the PAC endorsed the following candidates:

•    Robert Thoms, Tacoma City Council, Position 2
•    Joe Lonergan, Tacoma City Council, Position 5
•    Victoria Woodards, Tacoma City Council, Position 6
•    Connie Bacon, Port of Tacoma Commissioner, Position 1

 “Considering this is our first year of involvement in local politics,” said Toby Murray, President of the Tacoma-Pierce County Business Alliance PAC, “we feel positive about this slate of candidates and the results of the election.  Their ability to work with the business community on economic development, job creation and sustainable infrastructure will be critical.  All of these elements are vital to having a strong quality of life for everyone in our community.”

The Tacoma-Pierce County Business Alliance PAC opposed the Tacoma’s Prop 1 increasing utility taxes. With early results showing Prop 1 failing at the polls, the PAC expresses its thanks to the voters for maintaining a business environment which will increase jobs and grow the economy.
