Thank you for another year of remarkable achievements
Dear fellow King County employee,
Everywhere you look King County is moving forward. We are growing, we are building, and we are leading. And it is your efforts – and those of each of our King County colleagues – that are moving us forward and helping us build on our progress and successes.
Thanks to your talent, creativity, and hard work these last 12 months, we were able to deepen our investments, open new facilities, and rethink how we provide even more effective services.
What we achieved together this year is remarkable, and we have put together a slideshow of 19 accomplishments in 2019 to celebrate some of our achievements. Voters renewed the Parks Levy to invest millions into parks across King County. We opened the new Eagle Village shelter with innovative modular housing focused on serving Native American and Alaska Native people. We became the first local government in the United States to offer certified carbon credits to protect King County’s forests. And we set a new pet save rate record of 95%, up from the previous year’s record of 93%.
These are just a few of our accomplishments this year, and the difficulty of narrowing your achievements down to just 19 is a testament to your efforts.
Thank you for your contributions to our shared success this year. They bring us closer to our True North: making King County a welcoming community where every person can thrive.
Best wishes for a happy, peaceful, and productive 2020.
King County Executive
