Local Services Director John Taylor this week announced the appointment of Davis – who’s currently Deputy Director of King County Metro’s Rail Operations Division.
She will begin working with Road Services in November, and her appointment will be effective once the King County Council confirms it later this year.
“Tricia takes the helm of one of the most diverse divisions and management teams in the county, which under the leadership of Rick Brater developed a strategic plan that preserved a road system impacted by significant funding shortfalls,” Taylor said. “Tricia is a proven leader and has a well-earned reputation of leading with King County values and a commitment to racial justice. She is a problem solver, an innovative and strategic thinker, and is the perfect fit to help the Road Services Division confront its historic funding challenges and move into a new era of financial stability.”
“I am excited to join the hardworking team at Road Services and the Department of Local Services to continue to deliver excellent service to the residents of unincorporated King County,” Davis said. “I also look forward to taking on the challenge of securing sustainable funding for our vital road and bridge network so that we can continue in making King County a welcoming community where every person can thrive.”
