Here I am pictured with staff and participants with The Arc of King County in front of a retired Metro Vanpool van that my office donated to The Arc of King County.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

First, congratulations to Ketanji Brown Jackson for her confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court!

Second, I attended The Arc of King County’s Goodbye District 4 Office celebration last Friday. The Arc of King County is an organization dedicated to serve all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their programs have helped many in the community—whether that is through their supported Living Services or their constant advocacy for the individuals they serve. This event was mainly for staff and Supported Living participants to have a chance to say goodbye to their office one last time, and I was honored to join them.

Though I am sad to see such a wonderful organization no longer located in District 4, Renton will be lucky to have them move in. I also had a chance to take a photo with everyone in front of one of the retired Metro vans my office allocated to The Arc. I was pleased to hear that the vans have had a positive impact on their clients! My district will miss The Arc dearly, but I know our paths will continue to cross as they continue serving folks across King County.

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.
