About Frank

Who Is Frank Diaz?


Frank has a reputation for initiating and completing projects. His proven track record of accomplishments makes him the ideal candidate for City Council.

As a child growing up in a military family, later as a serviceman, Frank found himself living in various countries throughout the world including Iran, Turkey, South Africa, Panama, and Europe engraining in him a deep respect for diversity.  Upon settling at Fort Lewis in 1977, it was that experience of finally having a place to call home that Frank gained an appreciation for life in Pierce County.

Serving on the DuPont Parks and Recreation Agency, Frank has established himself as a “can do” guy; a champion in making DuPont a wonderful place to live, work and play. He believes that to have true long-lasting impactful change, it needs to be systemic. He will work tirelessly, to gradually implement the institutional reforms needed to fix problems when efforts to change one aspect of a system, fail. Frank believes that this must be a community-driven process.

As a veteran, entrepreneur and small business owner who has held countless leadership roles, there has never been a task too big to complete, nor a goal too grand to accomplish.
