Legal manager for Point Ruston Loren Cohen had this to say about plans for the ceremony; "Rep. Norm Dicks, Tacoma Mayor Strickland and Council Member Ryan Mello are planning to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony, plus a few other local dignitaries are invited who should really make this event special. I’m hoping that the Ruston council and Mayor will all turn out as well... and coupled with the police and fire dept. vehicles, and hopefully a Pierce Transit bus, this could be a really cool commemoration of the new Ruston Way!"
Ruston Councilmember Jim Hedrick has agreed to speak for the town. Hopefully many will wander down from the hillside and join in the celebration. We are finally on our way!
