Most residents of Pacific already know, this city is a great place to live, work or own a business. Despite heated local politics, we have caring neighbors, responsive public safety professionals, dedicated city staff, great community services and celebrations and one of the most beautiful locations in Washington to call home.
There is a lot about this recall campaign that is hard. Emotions run strong and feelings get hurt. It's necessary to focus on the negative much of the time. But the goal of this recall effort is positive. It's a chance to rebuild all that is good about Pacific. If we are successful, the recall offers a fresh start - where we can focus on what is good about our city knowing that our government is running effectively in the background.
That focus on what makes us a great community is important even now; especially now. Let's not wait. Please share with us what you love about Pacific. Tell us a story about a time something went right; when the police or fire department came to the rescue, when public works was helpful, a successful family picnic in our beautiful park, a time when neighbors came together to help.
