I’m Jim Merritt …
and I’m running to be the next Mayor of Tacoma
As a leader in the private sector, Democrat, father, and grandfather from Tacoma, I know there is a lot to be proud of in this city. I have spent my entire career making Tacoma an exceptional city to live, work and raise a family. My leadership made Point Ruston, the Foss Waterway, and Tacoma Union Station possible, providing opportunity for family-wage jobs and preserving local landmarks.
Tacoma still has incredible untapped potential. If we maximize our competitive advantage, we can become the economic engine for all of Southwest Washington and the Olympic Peninsula. As Mayor, I can realize this longterm vision for Tacoma that includes attracting family-wage jobs, restoring funding to public safety, and finally listening to the voices of our citizens.
I am running for Mayor to change the culture of our local government. Tacoma should work with its citizens, not against them. Tacoma should listen to taxpayers, not special interests. Voting for me as Mayor of Tacoma isn’t a vote for an agenda- it’s a vote for a seat at the table.
I humbly ask for your vote for Mayor of Tacoma.
