6th District Council meeting will honor retiring JBLM commander

The Pierce County Council will hold a special meeting in DuPont at 5 p.m. on Monday, July 27, to recognize the retirement of U.S. Army Col. H. Charles Hodges as well as conduct regular council business. Col. Hodges has served as commander of Joint Base Lewis-McChord since 2012 and is retiring after 30-years of military service.

“Colonel Hodges has been a great asset to the South Sound region as well as to the United States Army,” said Councilmember Doug Richardson, who represents Pierce County’s 6th Council District. “I am proud that Chuck and his family spent 13 years in various assignments at JBLM.”

Richardson, himself a retired U.S. Army Brigadier General, added that one of Col. Hodges’ greatest achievements was his work to improve the quality of life for soldiers and airmen as well as their well-being as they transitioned from military service.

The in-district council meeting will be held at DuPont City Hall, 1700 Civic Drive. The Pierce County Charter directs the council to hold at least one evening meeting in each of the seven districts to give county residents who may not be able to attend regular meetings in Tacoma a greater opportunity to participate in their government.

Those unable to attend the meeting can watch it later on PCTV (the county's television channel), online at the following day or on a mobile device with the PCTV app.
