Councilmember Hill stated,
“I feel extraordinarily grateful for the opportunity to work with committed and thoughtful Council colleagues. I also appreciate the leadership, talent, and professionalism of our City staff. I believe Tumwater is on the right path to growing a community recognized for opportunity, compassion, and entrepreneurship.”
