Why I won't support a comp plan veto override
You may have read recently that our county Comprehensive Plan update was vetoed by
the County Executive. Though I voted in favor at final passage, I opposed the
amendments that the Executive has called out in committee and at the full Council. I’m
relieved that the Council will now have a second opportunity to make a few modifications
for the betterment of the plan.
A successful U.S. Open in the books...
After a busy week of spectators, golfers and media occupying Pierce County, the 2015
U.S. Open at Chambers Bay has finally come to an end. The U.S. Open was the largest
event ever hosted by the county, and I couldn’t be more proud. From scenery to food
and the distinctive architecture of the links style course, the beautiful Pacific Northwest
created a unique experience for players and spectators that will keep them coming back
for years to come.
