I worked with Jason Whalen on the Lakewood City Council through the difficult economic times resulting from the 2008 financial downturn. Finding a path forward for our community proved challenging. But, through collaborative efforts, city council members worked together and our city came out stronger.
Time and time again, Jason has demonstrated his dedication to the well-being of every member of our community. Partisanship plays no part in Jason’s decision making, only progress. I’ve seen him take a thoughtful, dedicated approach to sensitive issues, including those related to law enforcement relationships with minority communities.
As a member of the Pierce County Council, Jason will push for reforms aimed at keeping all members of our communities safe. I know we can count on Jason to take action because of his proven record. He pushed for police reforms in Lakewood, including providing a mental health professional on police calls when someone is in crisis. Jason has a track record we can trust. I know Jason as a compassionate leader who doesn’t back away from difficult conversations.
Jason doesn’t have a partisan agenda; he works on behalf of the people – not of special interests or Party ideology. That’s why – though I am a Democrat – I am endorsing Jason for Pierce County Council.
I firmly believe that Pierce County must elect Jason Whalen, an experienced and compassionate leader. I’ve seen him in action and trust him to work for the best interests of every community member.
I hope you will join me in voting for Jason Whalen for Pierce County Council.
