Executive Constantine releases statement on Mayor Durkan’s employer tax proposal


King County Executive Dow Constantine released the following statement on Mayor Durkan’s tax plan.


“I commend Mayor Durkan for engaging with leaders across the community and creating a workable compromise. This is the kind of collaborative approach we need. The mayor’s plan for investing the funds is a better balance of addressing both immediate and long-term needs. Importantly, it includes resources for behavioral health, and better aligns with the regional approach that I have been working on with Mayor Durkan, Mayor Backus of Auburn, and many others. I remain committed to a region-wide response to the homelessness crisis, and I look forward to One Table’s final recommendations and tackling the work ahead.”
