Bridges and Roads Task Force

Recently King County Executive Dow Constantine and I convened a Bridges and Roads Task Force. It’s charged with recommending sustainable solutions for funding bridges and roads in unincorporated King County. As many of you know, I’ve been a strong proponent of finding workable solutions as we cannot let our bridges and roads fall into disrepair! The 1994 funding formula no longer works and it’s time for it to be reevaluated! I believe that this terrific group of people we’ve assembled will come up with some plans and solutions when the final report is presented in January 2016.

Here’s more information that explains the problem in detail and gives more background:

Boost Your Brainpower

I’m a strong proponent of exercising the brain as it’s a great way to stay sharp and avoid disease. I loved this article – it is chock full of very common sense ways to exercise our brains every day. Here’s to more conversation until we’re all over 100!

King County Noise Code

Effective July 2, unincorporated King County residents have a new, improved noise code. If you’re experiencing loud and raucous neighborhood noise, you should call the King County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency line at 206-296-3311. For construction noise, call the Department of Permitting and Environmental Review (DPER) at 206-296-6680. For unreasonable animal noise, call the Pet Information Line at 206-296-PETS (7387). Learn more, read the King County Noise Code Fact Sheet (pdf, 303KB).

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.
