King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert
Please take the time to look at this information. It is a huge concern to me that answers from the State are inadequate to solve this problem. A full conversation needs to be held to chart a course that will maintain and preserve our roads infrastructure.

County Health Rankings
Check out this website that compares the health of King County’s residents to other counties around the state and nation.
There are two types of rankings: “Health outcomes” are a measure of length and quality of life. “Health factors” are a measure of health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors, and the physical environment.
I thought this was very informative. It’s also a reminder that there is always room for improvement regarding our health.
