Former King County Councilmember Carolyn Edmonds, who represented Shoreline, Lake Forest Park and other northern suburban cities, is running for County Council again - but from Tacoma.
Edmonds, who has been a real estate agent and small business developer in Tacoma for several years, is running for a seat on the Pierce County Council, District 2, as a Democrat.
In her announcement, Edmonds contrasted herself with her presumptive Republican opponent, embattled Sen. Pam Roach, who recently moved from King County to run for the Pierce County Council seat.
“Passion is important to getting things done,” said Edmonds, “but it’s also important to build relationships and treat people right. I pledge to help build a County Council that Pierce County can be proud of.”
