A historic moment for our democracy

Dear fellow King County employee,

Last week, the American people elected a new president to lead us for the next four years and begin the work of healing our divided nation.

It was a historic victory for President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris, and indeed for democracy itself. I am eager to work with the new administration on fighting the pandemic, rebuilding our economy, upending racial bias, healing the planet, and restoring America’s standing in the world.

It is time to turn the page. I am grateful to once again have partners at the federal level focused on bringing our country together and advancing the critical work we are doing here in King County.

We have an unprecedented opportunity – not merely to go back to where we were eight months ago, or four years ago – but to press ahead, united and with urgency, to fulfill our nation’s potential.

I look toward to the future with hope and optimism. The work begins now. We face big challenges, but I am convinced that if we can focus on the fundamental values we share, we can build a brighter future for all people.





Dow Constantine
King County Executive
