Rick Talbert: County Council, Pierce County
Although Rick Talbert has been a strong proponent of economic development within Tacoma, he has shown during his last four-year term on the Tacoma City Council that he recognizes that sustainable growth policies, including urban green space preservation, are necessary to make the City a viable livable community. His votes on the City Council were vital to the passage of legislation to promote mixed-use center developments, "complete streets" to accommodate pedestrians, bicyclists and transit systems along with cars, and the establishment of a City Office of Sustainability and Sustainable Tacoma Commission. Furthermore, his campaign is in excellent condition with ample resources and support for him to win this open County Council seat. He will provide a strong voice for economic and environmental sustainability in Pierce County.
