A former Tacoma mayor, former city attorney and a former Tacoma Public Utilities director are among those who filed a lawsuit against the city Thursday, asking that Tacoma Power and its ratepayers be reimbursed for more than $21 million in subsidies they contend the utility has given to Click Cable TV over the last several years.
The Port of Tacoma commission candidate whose offensive tweets caused an uproar has officially withdrawn his campaign, the state Public Disclosure Commission reported this week. Jim Jensen’s campaign notified the disclosure commission Monday that Jensen is formally dropping out of the race for Position 1. He could later change his mind, according to the PDC. But for now, Jensen no longer can collect contributions, although he still can pay campaign expenses, the disclosure commission reported.
Commercial real estate broker Jim Jensen said Wednesday he was dropping out of the race for Position 1 on the Port of Tacoma Commission after screenshots of offensive posts from his deleted Twitter account made their way around the internet. But Jensen still could win a seat on the commission. The 37-year-old political novice’s name will appear on the primary ballot in August because the last day for candidates to formally withdraw was May 22, according to the Pierce County Auditor’s Office.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
