Constantine began his presentation by highlighting his commitment to working toward consensus-building for a welcoming community with opportunities for all. Constantine also discussed King County’s new Department of Local Services, which consolidated roads, permitting, community services and more to administer local services in the county.

The executive also discussed his office’s three areas of emphasis: homelessness, natural infrastructure and built infrastructure, and also engaged the local elected officials, business and community leaders in attendance by answering their questions.
