Cooke will highlight the city's accomplishments over the last year, and present the mayor's plans to build a stronger community from an economic, transportation and neighborhood standpoint.

"Our city is breaking through the worst recession in recent times, and we have the opportunity to start new, work together and produce real results that move our economy and our community forward," Cooke said. "This is our chance to get it right so we can build a strong, vibrant city for future generations."

"The Kent Chamber of Commerce is proud to work with Mayor Cooke on her State of the City Address," said Andrea Keikkala, executive director of the Kent Chamber.

"This event is a great opportunity for the community to come together to hear what the Mayor's vision is for our city. The Chamber has a long and successful relationship with Mayor Cooke and we look forward to continuing this partnership to ensure Kent stays competitive in our regional and global economy."

The event cost is $30 per person, which includes lunch. Cost for Chamber members is $20. There is a $5 charge for attendees who wish to attend but forgo the lunch.
