King County Legislative Forum

This past Wednesday we held our 18th annual legislative forum. It was amazing! We had a crowd of about 500 and nearly 25 legislators in attendance. I was honored to introduce the speakers for the evenings events.

Ed Murray the new mayor and first openly gay mayor for Seattle was in attendance! So proud of our new mayor! As a state Senator Ed has always supported the needs of those with mental health and substance use disorders.

Representative Tina Orwall from the 33rd Legislative District who is a social worker by background attended the event. She has done so much to improve the lives of the citizens of Washington residents.

My dear friend and colleague Mary Taylor who is the King County Drug Court Manager was my support for the evening! Thanks Mary! You are the best!

Already looking forward to next years event!
