King County Councilmember Jane Hague
It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the citizens of King County as your District 6 Councilmember for the past 22 years.
As I prepare to move to new challenges and adventures, my life will be greatly enhanced by the experiences gained, the connections with colleagues and constituents acquired, and memories of the road traveled, a road that was often paved with obstacles but with destinations worthy of the struggle.
During these years, it has been a pleasure to serve in most of the leadership roles at the Council. Included has been Chair of the Council, Chair of its Committee of the Whole, Chair of Growth Management, Budget and Employment Committees, Co-Chair of the Eastside Rail Corridor (ERC) and so many more. Each has provided its own challenges and rewards. I have also been honored to serve on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Counties (NACo) for all of my years as an elected Councilmember and am particularly proud of the years I spent as an officer and then President of an organization that represented all of the nation’s counties at the national level, taking their issues to Congress and the White House.
I am proud of our many achievements and grateful for the opportunities the citizens of District 6 have provided me to serve, lead and learn.
