Statement from County Council Chair Larry Gossett on the death of State Senator Scott White



“Before becoming a member of the Washington state Legislature, Senator Scott White was a valuable member of the County Council staff.

“The Council was very aware of Scott’s talents. Beginning as a legislative analyst, Senator White worked his way to becoming the Council’s Chief of Staff.

“The skills he showed in his too short of a time in the Legislature are an example of the energy and passion that Senator White brought to everything he did. We are particularly in his debt for his leadership in the State Senate in the adoption of the $20 Congestion Reduction Charge which will help us maintain Metro Transit service for the next two years

“On behalf of the Council, our condolences go out to Scott’s wife Alison and their children.”
