Timothy Reynon 11/9/21 3:33 PM I'm writing to express my support for a tribal representative to serve on the County's Equity Review Committee. What I don't support is for that tribal representative to be a non-voting member of the Committee. The message that sends to the indigenous people on whose land the County operates and exists, is that your voice doesn't matter to the same extent as those who took our land in the first place. Such a distinction on this important Committee undermines the hard work that many of you have done to strengthen and improve the relationship with our tribes in Pierce County. I would strongly encourage you to make this tribal representative position a voting member of the Committee. Thank you for your time and consideration.
