King County Executive Dow Constantine released the following statement after the passing of Kenny McCormick
Today we learned the terrible news of the sudden passing of Kenny McCormick, President of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 587. Kenny was a relentless advocate for his members, the transit employees who make up King County government's largest labor group. Our county family extends our heartfelt condolences to Kenny's wife and family, and to the thousands of ATU 587 members - bus and rail operators, maintenance employees and others - who daily get the people of King County where they need to go and bring them safely home again. Thank you for your many years of service, Kenny. Farewell.
