Smitherman mystery plan to create jobs.

In her campaign materials Karen Smitherman mentions that she has a plan to grow jobs in Tacoma. I'm very interested in this plan. Unfortunately, there is nothing on her campaign website about it and my cursory examination of her public statements on the campaign revealed nothing. If any one knows anything about Smitherman's Jobs plan would they please tell us or provide a link? Tacoma needs jobs and this isn't something that should be hidden away.

Fredo, I know you have a plan. I beleive you've hit on many points of it in the past.

Why don't you run? Even if I didn't agree with your policies, it'd be refreshing to hear something other than empty promises.

Thanks thorax. If I were running for this office and announced a plan or a goal I would make sure to clearly articulate it so there would be no misunderstanding. I would offer a means to measure its success or failure as well. These candidates who just fill up their brochures with buzz words and worthless endorsements are really, excuse the expression, scoundrels.

Same here too. I think Fredo would be a better honest candidate as well.
BTW there is a story about her on the news tribune.
Then again they like to control who we should vote for.

I believe there is precedent for video store owners on the council, as well...
