My friend from college, Ryan Mello is running for Tacoma Parks Commissioner (position #4). He’s a great guy and I worked with him a lot when he was the ASUPS (our student government) president at my college my sophomore year. Admitedly, I don’t know too much about the Tacoma Parks Board, but I’m sure he’d do a great job, and reading through stuff on his website and his interview with The Tacoma News Tribune, I’m sure he’d do a great job.
(Disclaimer: I created that website for him…)
Nonetheless, if you live in Tacoma, register to vote and give him a chance!
