Executive Constantine’s Top 19 Accomplishments in 2019
Everywhere you look King County is moving forward. We are growing, we are building, and we are leading.
Tens of thousands move to King County every year. And they bring with them new ideas and perspectives that celebrate the things we all treasure about our home. We continue to be a diverse, welcoming community that stands by our shared values.
Though the growth in King County has brought with it great prosperity for many, there are still too many of our friends and neighbors left out and falling behind. Despite great efforts and achievements, ending the homelessness crisis is still a challenge we collectively bear.
But in our work, by and on the behalf of the people of King County, we are moving forward. This year we built on our progress and our successes. We deepened investments. We opened new facilities and we rethought how to best provide services.
These 19 accomplishments for 2019 highlight just some of the work King County has done. And not only does it show you where we’ve been, but charts the course to show where we’re going as well.
We’ve achieved a lot, but the work continues. That’s why I, and my 15,000 fellow King County employees, are looking forward to serving you in 2020.
Thank you, as always, for the opportunity to serve.
