Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I hope that you all had a restful weekend and were able to enjoy the sun on Saturday in a safe and physically distant way. This week at the Council, we have several meetings in which you may be interested.

This week at the King County Council:

  • King County Council--Tuesday, March 16th at 1 p.m.—At this week’s meeting, Councilmembers Balducci, Lambert, and I will be presenting a proclamation declaring March 2021 as Women’s History Month. I will also be introducing legislation to expand tenant protections that I have collaborated on with Councilmember Zahilay. This legislation will be referred to the Community, Health and Housing Committee.
  • Committee of the Whole--Wednesday, March 17th at 9:30 a.m. --Dwight Dively, the Director of the Office of Performance, Strategy and Budget will provide a briefing on the COVID response and the committee will discuss and potentially take action on a fireworks ban In Unincorporated King County.
