Dear Friends and Neighbors,

There’s good news and there’s bad news.  The good news is that King County voters showed up in force for the election and, as of last night, turnout countywide was more than 85%.  The bad news is that our state just set a record for the number of daily coronavirus cases.  The numbers are surging statewide - including in King County – and public health officials are pleading for increased vigilance with COVID-19 precautions.   

On October 29th King County hit its highest number of cases in a single day - - 387.  Please see the information below from the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) about the current surge and the need to increase your coronavirus precautions right now.  Unfortunately, there still is no vaccine or cure for COVID-19.  In order to stop this surge and “flatten the curve” we must all do our part.  We’ve done it before and we can do it again. 

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.
