  • Joe Tessier
    I am submitting myself as a candidate for the King County Personnel Board in order to be of service to King County and our community. I served as a union representative at Teamsters Local #117 for 25 years, until my retirement as President and Executive Director in 2010. Since my retirement I have become certified as a mediator and volunteer as a member of the King County ADR program. I believe in fair and equitable treatment of all working people and believe that employees who work in an environment where they know they will be treated with dignity, respect, and equity, are more likely to be better public servants. I look forward to assisting King County in providing that environment through service on the Personnel Board.
