Several months ago, my neighbors and I were suffering from a chronic noise issue from the nearby university. I repeatedly brought this to the attention of university staff, but my concerns were never taken seriously.
When I told Tacoma City Councilman Anders Ibsen about this problem, he got the city to investigate and resolve the problem within days. Throughout our interaction, I was impressed with his availability and listening skills.
I continue to be impressed with his work as a city councilman. He is people-oriented, competent and responsive to his constituency. He has a proven track record of results in matters ranging from traffic and pedestrian safety to closing multimillion-dollar city tax loopholes so that these funds can go for needed services. He cares about our neighborhood issues.
I enthusiastically support his re-election and encourage everyone to vote to return him to office.
