Candidates who filed for the offices of City of Tacoma Mayor, Tacoma City Council, Tacoma Civil Service Board, Port of Tacoma Commission and Tacoma School Board were invited to participate in the program. The series will begin airing on TV Tacoma beginning Aug. 1, and will also be available online at http://www.tvtacoma.com .
