New Tacoma Award Nomination
on 4/11/2008 @ 3:37pm
|Well, you might have heard that our own Kevin Freitas was nominated for the New Tacoma Award for "recognizing the individual who has done the most to build community spirit." Unfortunately, the Chamber decided on someone else. As part of the group that nominated him, we'd like to share with you what we wrote about Kevin.
Kevin Freitas is the creator and driving force behind FeedTacoma.com, an online community focused on the improvement of both downtown and the entirety of our oftentimes unfairly maligned city. Just two short years since the creation of the site, FeedTacoma is an established community bustling with creative energy. The site consists of blogs, forum discussions, event calendars and help-wanted advertisements all for and about the city of Tacoma. Just recently, Kevin introduced an online shop designed for use by local, community-owned business, giving them the opportunity to increase sales and exposure. All of this is done free of charge, giving ordinary Tacomans access to professionally designed web tools, web hosting and a forum for their opinions and ideas.

|Congrats on the nomination Kevin and on the creation of Feed Tacoma. Feed Tacoma has been an incredible asset to the community and I suspect will continue to grow by leaps and bounds.|
