Election: Burns deserves arrow by his name

Voters in Pierce County Council District 4, who had no choice in this year’s election, now have a choice and it’s a good one. Kit Burns, a retired Tacoma architect who helped lead the effort to stop Pierce County from spending $230 million for a general services building, has declared a write-in candidacy.

Burns, a longtime Tacoma resident, is honest, compassionate and wants a new direction. He envisions a council that will listen and involve the citizens in their local government. He has seen how the lack of transparency has damaged the integrity of county government. Those who wish to cast a valid vote for Burns need to write in his name on the primary ballot and connect the arrow next to his name with a single line.
