Celebrating your service during Public Service Recognition Week
Dear fellow King County employee,
This week we celebrate your work and the work of every public servant during Public Service Recognition Week, May 5 – 11, 2019.
We all come to public service from different places, with unique perspectives and diverse skills, but the one thing we share is a desire to serve our community and make things better for the people who live here today, and for those who will follow.
In my 2019 State of the County address, I spoke about the vision that drives me to do the work that I am so passionate about, my “True North”: Making King County a welcoming community where every person can thrive.
This statement captures the essence of our work at King County, and what is at the heart of public service. It serves as a navigational point that we can set our sights on, define our policies and decision-making by, and work together to reach.
Each day I see examples of your efforts and ideas that move us closer to our True North. You work hard every day to make King County a welcoming place, to improve the lives of the people who live here and the people who move here for a better life, and to give them all the best shot at success.
Thank you for everything that you do for the people of King County. I am proud to lead this County and proud to be your colleague in public service.
King County Executive
