I presented a “big check” to Long Live the Kings at Ray’s Boathouse after our visit to the Ballard Locks last Friday.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,                 

Last Friday, I went on a very informative tour of the Ballard Locks, organized by Long Live the Kings (LLTK) and Water Resource Inventory Area 8 (WRIA 8). We discussed salmon passage through the Ship Canal, predation patterns, and operations of the Locks. 

After the tour, I presented LLTK with this “big check” in recognition of the $40,000 grant that Councilmember Girmay Zahilay and I secured as part of the WaterWorks grant program.

Thank you, Long Live the Kings, for all the work you do implementing solutions to address the impact of high temperatures and levels of dissolved oxygen in the Ship Canal!

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.
