New General Services Admin Building

Pierce County is developing a proposal to convert the former Human Services Campus site into a new building for the county’s general government services.

View the project newsletter and webpage for more information.

I oversee the daily operations of Pierce County government and its 3,000 employees who provide services that build and maintain healthy communities.

We responded to the impact of the Great Recession by cutting millions in spending, combining departments and programs, closing inefficient buildings and reducing our energy usage by more than 10 percent, among other things.

Through strategic management decisions, we are still moving Pierce County forward. We have preserved farmland and open space, saved Sprinker Recreation Center’s ice rink, opened new parks and alleviated traffic congestion by widening and improving roads and intersections.

We are working on initiatives to create more aerospace jobs, address growth issues around Joint Base Lewis-McChord, build a better 911 communications system and host an outstanding U.S. Open at Chambers Bay in 2015.

I hope you find helpful information about Pierce County on this site. Please contact me if you have questions or comments.
