Here are the recommendations from the The News Tribune Editorial Board for the primary election Aug. 1, 2017. We are focusing on Pierce County’s largest cities this year.

We typically pick two favorites to advance from the primary, then settle on one candidate before the November general election. However, we occasionally deviate from endorsing two primary candidates when the field is exceptionally strong or weak.
