Creating a stronger, safer and racially just community

Dear fellow King County employee,

We are all dealing with strong feelings of anger, grief and despair over the tragic death of Charleena Lyles in Seattle on Sunday. We all have many questions, and await more details as they emerge.

Meanwhile, we continue to witness acts of violence and terrorism and the senseless loss of life across this nation and around the world with startling frequency.

This is a difficult time for many of us. I invite you to come together with fellow employees tomorrow, Friday, June 23, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the 8th floor conference room at King Street Center, where we can share how these incidents are making us feel and seek ways to make us a stronger, safer, and racially just community.





Dow Constantine
King County Executive
