I want to express my sincere gratitude to the County Council for choosing me for the tremendous honor of following Ron Sims as King County Executive. I want to also thank the other county elected leaders and the many community members who participated in the process to choose the new executive.

This government faces extraordinary challenges regarding the budget and public health and safety in the next six months. I believe the continuity in governing that I bring to the office as Executive Sims' Chief of Staff for the last five years will be a benefit to the people of King County. The staff and the regional relationships are in place and the team is knowledgeable and already at work. I pledge an open, collaborative relationship with our regional partners, our council and our citizens as we tackle the tough issues and deliver a sound budget and a well-functioning government to the executive that is elected in November.
