I would like to thank everyone for the support I received during my run for Pierce County Council.
It will continue to be my motivating force to ensure that the Key Peninsula’s voice is heard in county governance. Having met with both candidates who advanced to the general election, I feel we will best be represented by Paula Lonergan.
Politics have become a very divided partisan game with the ruling party pushing an agenda of supporting the criminals and rioters in our streets. Law enforcement is handcuffed and threatened individually with discipline if they attempt to do their job. That party is quick to shut down any discussion and put a negative label on anyone willing to challenge that narrative. We cannot continue going this direction.
Paula is an African American grandmother who is not afraid to instill the discipline needed to take our streets back while showing the compassion to correct behavior to get someone on the right track.
