Perfect weather at the same site we did last year. A 33% increase in participation from last year. Event started after everyone had a chance to get some food (pot luck), with a welcome from Pierce County Councilman Doug Richardson. Followed by 28th District State Representative Dick Muri (me) reading a proclamation celebrating National Drive Electric Week from State of Washington Governor Jay Inslee. Javier Figueroa, the Mayor Pro Tem of the City of University Place also gave us a welcome. I then facilitated a discussion of EVs from everyone in attendance. President of the Tacoma Public Utilities Board of Directors discussed some items. A representative from Nissan Regional Office in California answered a lot of questions. Overall, a very informative and enjoyable day was had by everyone.
