ELECTION: Hines has earned trust in Proctor District

District 1 voters deserve a Tacoma City Council representative who sincerely engages with his constituents to understand the issues facing the community. They will find that in John Hines.

As a member of 4Proctor, I have had numerous conversations with Hines regarding the concerns of Proctor residents and patrons about large-scale development in our neighborhood. He has taken the time to actively listen to the community, remaining open to different perspectives, and ultimately refined his understanding of the issue after undertaking his own careful study.

While Hines’ support for our effort to restore Proctor’s 45-foot height limit is important, more important is his sincere interest in hearing his future constituents’ voices and advocating for their reasonable interests, as an elected representative should. He has earned the trust, and support, of District 1 voters.
