Working together on our priorities

People choose a career at King County because they want to make a difference in their communities and the lives of the people who live and work in them, and their efforts are guided by four key priorities.

“Over the last several years we have been working in four priority areas – best-run government, regional mobility, confronting climate change and building equity and social justice – to make King County a better place to live, work and raise a family,” King County Executive Dow Constantine said in a recent email to employees. “Our priorities guide us in our daily work. The work that we do each day moves us forward in each of these areas, things like replacing the expiring Veterans and Human Services Levy, building a zero-emission bus fleet and ensuring we are a welcoming community for immigrants and refugees.”

Executive Constantine recently launched a new webpage to highlight some of the key issues that County leadership and employees are focused on.
