I have had the honor and pleasure of working with Mike Lonergan while we both served on the Tacoma City Council. I found Mike to be smart, hard working and honest. Unlike his opponent, Mike has no ties to Pierce County politics or to the employees who currently work in the Assessor/Treasurer’s Office. Mike will ask the tough questions. He has the ability to identify the problems and find the solutions. And Mike has the proven leadership skills to ensure the Assessor/Treasurer’s Office is made accountable to the citizens of Pierce County.
