Councilmember Dunn interviews with King 5's Natalie Swaby

Councilmember Reagan Dunn speaks with Natalie Swaby at KING5 News about his proposal to re-hire County employees who were let go due to the vaccine mandate.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

This week I introduced legislation calling on King County to re-hire law enforcement officers, emergency personnel, and other employees we lost due to the since-retracted COVID-19 vaccine mandate. You can watch my interview at KING 5 to learn more about my proposal. 

When the vaccination requirement was put in place nearly two years ago, close to 300 King County employees lost their jobs. Now that this requirement has been lifted, we should focus on bringing back the high-quality, experienced employees that we depend upon—especially as our County continues to struggle to hire enough deputies to fully staff our Sheriff’s Office.

I will continue to update you on this proposal as it is considered by the King County Council.

All my best,

Councilmember Reagan Dunn Signature
