Your Update on What's Happening at the King County Council  

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

This week, after a nation-wide search, King County Executive Dow Constantine appointed Patti Cole-Tindall, who has been serving as our interim Sheriff, as the next King County Sheriff.

Patti Cole-Tindall has deep roots in King County and invaluable knowledge of our challenges and unique dynamics, and importantly, has been able to build consensus and boost morale during her tenure as interim Sheriff. Now, in her new role, Sheriff Cole-Tindall is in a critical position to address the alarming erosion of public safety that we are witnessing — including record levels of violent crime, a surge in shootings, and a drug trade that is fueling skyrocketing fatal overdoses, all during a time of a severe deputy shortage. This escalating lawlessness hurts us all — and we have heard from King County residents that what they want is a stronger Sheriff’s Office and more law enforcement in their communities. This is a big task, and a monumentally important one.

I look forward to continuing a productive relationship with Sheriff Patti Cole-Tindall and will partner with and support her however I can as she rebuilds public safety in King County.

All my best,

Reagan Dunn signature
