Mayor Chuck Hunter
Gig Harbor has a unique character that, after 50 years, has grown very dear to me. My decision to become mayor was, in part, because I'd like my grandchildren to experience the remarkable beauty my wife and I have enjoyed all these years.
During my campaign in 2005 the question residents asked the most was, “How can we preserve our quality of life?” There is no simple answer because it’s not a “one size fits all” solution.
Term: December 31, 2013
The answer lies in sound planning and strong leadership. We must understand Gig Harbor's history and the needs of individual neighborhoods throughout our city. From Gig Harbor North and the Westside; the Downtown and Stinson, Pioneer, Soundview and Peacock Hills; and our historic neighborhoods of Millville and the Finholm District -- we all expect adequate services, safety and access to city government. We want a stable environment for our families and our youth. What we do today, will define our quality of life for generations. As mayor, I will be your advocate. My office hours at the Civic Center are from 9am to 4pm Monday through Thursday. Our website is a great place for citizens to follow our progress, access regulatory information, locate meeting dates and contact us directly. If you have any questions or comments, send an e-mail to me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
