What happened to the Vision For Tacoma draft that Mayor Marilyn Strickland and the City Council paid $350,000 to a Seattle consulting firm to produce? I have emailed Councilman Anders Isben and Strickland and received no response.
Our local leaders have set the bar at a new low in many areas, especially when it comes to listening to their constituents. I attended a City Council meeting recently and Strickland left chambers and did not return during the public comment forum. Fifty bucks to attend her "state of the city" address?
Now she wants to propose an $180 per year tax over 10 years on homeowners for potholes and spend millions more to run a rail line to the hub of city business, Hilltop. Her arrogance is only exceeded by her lack of vision.
