The election is not certified until November 29, but with only a handful of votes left to count it appears Steve Vermillion has won the at-large seat on the City Council.
After a long, hard-fought battle he has beaten current appointed District One council member Nicole Martineau.
Mr. Vermillion was the clear choice, with endorsements from the Police, Fire, and News Tribune. He has the background and life experience to excel at this position. Mr. Vermillion also was able to win this election by running a clean campaign, focusing on his credentials, leaving his opponent alone.
Puyallup is a better city with his representation.
