Tim Farrell (D): County Council #4, Pierce County
We endorsed Council Member Tim Farrell in 2004 for County Council Position 4, which includes the City of Tacoma. Farrell has been the only Council Member, besides Goings, who we could count on to be solidly in the green camp. Because he was in his first term and in the minority party on the Council, it was not the time to take a leadership role. However, he closely followed Goings' lead on all the important environment and land-use issue votes. Though Farrell is a heavy favorite, it is important to show him our support and to encourage him to provide more leadership on his own without Goings on the Council. In this next term, there may be a good opportunity for Farrell to work closely with Goings, as the new County Executive, to pass environmental legislation.
