Old-fashioned MicrophoneThank you to the Business Examiner for the mention of Sumner in the article, “2015 Could Be Big for Pierce Economy.”  Thank you also to Denise Dyer of Pierce County Economic Development and Bruce Kendall of the Tacoma-Pierce County Economic Development Board for ongoing support and regional work.   New businesses are moving into Sumner, bringing our total to over 10,000 for regional employment, but as the article says, traffic congestion will be a problem.  Highway 167 must get finished and the section through Sumner needs a third lane.  See our 2015 Legislative Agenda for more details.
