Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Like you, I am enormously relieved to be able to open my windows, breathe freely again and get outside for a walk!

I have two important reminders for you.  First, the deadline for completing and submitting the census is next week – September 30th.  Several events are planned for this Wednesday to help residents with the census, including some free giveaways and language translation services.  Please see the article and links below for full details, including helpful background on why the census is so important for King County.

Second, Executive Constantine will present his proposed biennial budget to the County Council tomorrow.  The public is welcome to view his address.  Please see details below.    

As always, I would like to hear from you. You can call me at 206-477-1004 or you can reach me by email at 

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
