Tacoma’s East Side is a bit of a mystery to many Tacomans. Tacoma City Councilman Marty Campbell (who represents the East Side and South End neighborhoods of Tacoma) is here to talk about his district, dispel myths about the East Side, and share some of the east side’s hidden gems. In addition we talk about the great food across the East Side, Lincoln District, and South End, which I did my best to list below in the show notes!

In the past they’ve experienced some challenges and needs that have brought them together. They’ve mobilized and now they’re benefiting from all these new projects coming in, new development coming in.”

Projects such as the upcoming  East Side Community Center  and the successful Stewart Heights Pool are improving the quality of life for residents.
