ELECTION: Al Abbott for Gig Harbor City Council

Those who know Al Abbott are familiar with his vision, creativity and giving.

He and his wife Virginia moved to Gig Harbor in 2001 to be closer to family and raise their two daughters. Gig Harbor has been the beneficiary of their citizenship and unique skill set in advertising and branding which they have developed for more than 30 years across the country.

While serving on many local civic and service organizations, Abbott has been instrumental in developing numerous local events and activities. In addition, the couple’s advertising and branding business extends throughout the greater Gig Harbor and Pierce County area, which enables them to bring their expertise and knowledge to the table.

After growing up in Mexico, working stints in New York City with Grey Advertising and later being recruited in the mid-1980s by McCann-Erickson as the co-creative supervisor in Los Angeles, Abbott has a keen sense of bridging the gap between “quality of life” and “economic vitality.

A vote for Abbott is a vote for quality growth with quality of life.
