John Palmer, the current chair of the Planning Commission, has announced he is running for the District 2 seat open in the 2011 election. This seat is currently held by Councilmember Tami Brouillet.
Below is his announcement email:
Today, I’m announcing my candidacy for the Puyallup City Council, District 2. As many of you know, I currently serve on Puyallup’s Planning Commission and have been elected Chair for three years. I’m looking forward to drawing on this experience along with my background in government and policy to hopefully represent you and our fellow citizens on the Council.
It’s time for some positive change on the Council. I will bring an upbeat and collaborative approach to the Council and focus on growing Puyallup smartly and maintaining and enhancing our community and neighborhoods.
The primary (August 16th) and general election (November 8th) are several months away, but it’s time to get my campaign rolling. Over the coming months, I look forward to hearing from Puyallup residents and groups about what they want for Puyallup.
I would greatly appreciate your support! There will be plenty of ways to join the “palmer party.” Right now, I could use your help in getting the word out by talking to your friends and neighbors and forwarding this email. Also, please tell me if you would like to be listed as a supporter on my website (even if you live outside of District 2).
Please visit my website (link below) to learn more about me and my views and check out the map of District 2 (link below). And please provide me your ideas on how we can continue to make Puyallup a great place to live, work, and play.
