King County Executive Dow Constantine is among five government leaders from across the country named to the Board of Directors of ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability USA, the leading local government association addressing climate change and sustainability.

“I’m honored to serve on this board and to have the opportunity to work with colleagues from across the country on these important issues that affect every community,” said Executive Constantine. “Identifying sustainable approaches and systems for dealing with climate change and energy needs will require innovative thinking from across the country. ICLEI’s board provides an excellent venue for this work.”

Executive Constantine’s participation on the board is aimed at reducing costs by sharing and learning about best practices from other jurisdictions that involve practical approaches to saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the local government level.

The other four new members of the ICLEI USA Board of Directors are:
• Michael Nutter (Philadelphia) - Mayor
• Bob Austin (Clackamas County, OR) – Commissioner
• Salud Carbajal (Santa Barbara County, CA) – Board of Supervisors
