King County Council District 9 has an abundance of beautiful parks, trails, lakes, and open spaces. Both residents and wildlife alike benefit from these resources, either for recreation or for habitat. Earlier this week, the County Council voted to direct nearly $5 million from the King County Parks Levy and the King County Conservations Futures Fund to continue to maintain and expand these natural areas in District 9. I hope that with these funds, District 9 will continue to enjoy these natural treasures for years to come.

2016 Legislative Update

Drug and alcohol addictions are tragically common in Washington State and across our nation. We know that treatment and recovery for those suffering from addiction is possible. Several organizations have tested methods that help guide participants towards recovery. A central part of these programs includes sponsors who provide support for participants, which is an essential resource for a full recovery. I feel very strongly that communications between a sponsor and a participant, which is often extremely personal and confidential, should become protected communication.

With thanks to Senator Joe Fain for sponsoring SSB 6498, King County is proposing a new law that would protect the communication between a sponsor and participants in recovery fellowships. To read more about the specifics of the bill please see my Op Ed:


After its unanimous adoption in the State Senate, the bill is under consideration in the House. It has been sent from the House Judiciary Committee and awaits final action.
