Ryan Mello: City Parks Commission #4, Tacoma

Ryan has the energy and vision to push for new ideas to improve parks and their programs. He has proven himself a strong environmental advocate, working most recently as the legislative assistant to state Rep. Hans Dunshee; he’s also served as campaign manager for state Rep. Derek Kilmer and Washington Conservation Board member Bill LaBorde.

His long list of endorsers includes two sitting park commissioners, Washington Conservation Voters, state Sen. Debbie Regala, and State Representative Jeannie Darnielle. Ryan has the ability to work well with others and will provide the Tacoma Metro Parks Board with the fresh perspective and energy it sorely needs.
