Thank you for making this recognition possible

Dear fellow King County employee,

Each day, you help set an example of what a creative, forward-thinking government can accomplish.

You do it not for the public recognition, but for the satisfaction of knowing we’re making our community a better place to live. Still, it’s nice when our work is recognized, particularly on a national stage.

Tonight at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., I will receive a Public Official of the Year award from Governing magazine. I will be joined by the Governor of Massachusetts, the Mayor of Denver, and a few other officials from across the country who are delivering innovative solutions to the greatest challenges of our time.

At a time of uncertainty at the national level, we continue to make progress toward being a more just, inclusive region where all have the chance to achieve their full potential. We are embracing the future, upholding the American promise of hope, freedom and opportunity for all.

I invite you to watch this brief video that reflects on what we have achieved together, and how we will continue to lead the way forward.

Thank you helping make this recognition possible.
