King County Executive Dow Constantine is poised to deliver the State of the County address Monday to County Council members, leaders and community members.
The speech — Constantine’s inaugural State of the County address since assuming the top job in November 2009 — offers a chance to highlight accomplishments, highlight the executive’s legislative agenda and the council’s priorities.
Constantine is due to deliver the speech at a special council Committee-of-the-Whole meeting at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent, 401 Fourth Avenue N. The speech starts at 10 a.m.
Leaders picked Kent for the location to highlight the population centers beyond Seattle, as well as the diversity of residents served by county government.
Residents planning to attend the address should allow ample time to find parking, pass through a security checkpoint and reach the speech location. If the public garage is full, overflow parking is available across the street at the ShoWare Center lot.
The speech is also scheduled to air at 8 p.m. March 1, 9:30 p.m. March 2 and 10 p.m. March 4.
