Fall is the season for candidate forums here at City Club Tacoma. Our second candidate's forum features the Pierce County Council races for Councils #2, 4, and 6. During this public health crisis and economic recession, the people will decide who will lead our county into recovery and prosperity for the next four years.

The candidates for county council are Sarah Rumbaugh and Hans Zeiger for County Council 2. Javier Figueroa and Ryan Mello for County Council 4. Jani Hitchen and Jason Whalen for County Council 6.


Our moderator is Dr. Michael Artime, Department Chair of Political Science at Pacific Lutheran University.


Community members are encouraged to submit questions that they would like discussed at City Club candidate forums. Email questions in advance to, or submit to the Q&A section during the Zoom. While we likely won't be able to get to everyone's exact questions, we'll work to have the candidates respond to as many topics as possible.
