Kent Mayor Dana Ralph will deliver her 2023 State of the City address on Tuesday, March 14 at Kent-Meridian High School, 10020 SE 256th St.

The event is open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

“We’ve had a great year with much to celebrate, and I’m looking forward to sharing stories of our success, what we’ve accomplished at Kent City Hall and what’s on the horizon,” Ralph said as she announced the date of the speech last week in her weekly emailed update.

Ralph also delivered her State of the City address last year at Kent-Meridian, where she graduated from in 1989. Ralph is in her sixth year as mayor. Voters elected her to a four-year term in 2017 and reelected her in 2021.
