Government can only be as good as those we elect to serve, Diaz is quoted as saying in the release. I want to join the council to make sure they look out for us in the fifth district the way our neighbors look out for each other.
Diaz, who is also volunteers on the Citys Human Rights Commission and is vice president of Pierce County Young Democrats, said in her announcement she already has lined up endorsements from former state Sen. Rosa Franklin, state Rep. Steve Kirby and Pierce County Councilwoman Connie Ladenburg.
