Will represent District 9 on the Council
StoryEnumclaw resident Elbert Reed is the newest member of the panel that monitors and reviews the expenditure of funds for veteran related programs paid for from the Veterans and Human Services Levy. The Metropolitan King County Council gave its unanimous approval to Reed’s appointment to the Veterans Citizen Levy Oversight Board at the Council’s April 13 meeting.
Mr. Reed, an active member and past commander of the Enumclaw VFW Post 1949, was nominated for the Board by Metropolitan King County Councilman Reagan Dunn. Reed will represent the veterans of the Ninth Council District on the board.
“I am very thankful to have a person of such high quality serving on the Veterans Board,” said Dunn. “Elbert brings his background as a veteran, his management skills from his years at Weyerhaeuser and his commitment to the community to this position. The residents of Enumclaw—and the entire county—will be well served with his appointment.”
Mr. Reed is currently doing volunteer service with veterans and their families. He also helps to lead the commitment services at Tahoma National Cemetery and memorial services at the Enumclaw Veterans Memorial Park.
“I am honored by this appointment, and will do my best to assist my fellow veterans,” said Reed.
The King County Veterans Citizen Oversight Board (VCOB) monitors and reviews the expenditure of the veteran portion of levy proceeds in accordance with an adopted Service Improvement Plan, which guides the activities of the King County Veterans and Human Services Levy. This is a three year appointment.
