King County Executive Dow Constantine and King County Council Chair Joe McDermott today issued the following statement in response to a letter from the U.S. Department of Justice.
The Department of Justice has ramped up its campaign of intimidation, threatening local officials who follow the law and protect local residents.
To be clear, we comply with the requirements for federal public safety grants. The Department of Justice’s reckless actions threaten the safety of our communities.
Just as we always follow the law, King County will always be a safe, welcoming place for all people.
