Statement:

Dennis King is a community leader who has lived in Puyallup for over 35 years. He and his wife Melinda were married at Pioneer Park, and Puyallup is where they decided to raise their 2 children.  Dennis understands what it takes to own a small business. Dennis has focused continually on giving back to the community that has supported the King Family here in Puyallup since 1969.

 

Dennis King would like to see our City Council continue to focus on PUYALLUP-STYLE Collaboration and Consensus-Building, NOT Seattle-Style politics. We must embrace our community that encourages safety and responsibility for all. As a Civil Service Commissioner, Dennis King fully supports our Police, Fire, & EMS Professionals. We must continue to preserve Puyallup’s traditions, values, and dedication to public service.

 

Dennis King understands the challenges that our city is facing. Citizens respect Dennis as a forward-thinking visionary and problem solver who produces results.

“The future that I envision for our community and our youth is bright.  We must continue to strengthen our community through unity, not the bureaucracies that could take hold of our city if we are not prudent. Let’s do something great Puyallup!”
