Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles is our very own bad ass feminist icon on the King County Council. We want her to continue.
– King County Councilmember Dave Upthegrove
Throughout her years in public service, Jeanne has worked for a clean environment, recreational opportunities for everyone and universal access to the arts. Without her this region would not be as green and as joyful a place that it is today.

– Seattle civic and environmental policy leader MaryAnne Tagney
I appreciate Councilmember Kohl-Welles’ leadership in advancing policies that protect all residents of King County and especially for her work in standing up to the attacks of the current federal administration against immigrant and refugee communities. She has helped to ensure that our county will continue to identify ways to be a more welcoming place for all.
– Jorge Barón
Nobody outworks Councilmember Kohl-Welles on the County Council. She has secured major transit investments for Seattle, and has been a powerful and effective advocate for improving our health, the environment and housing and human services programs.

– King County Council Chair Rod Dembowski
Women’s rights, including the still ridiculous fight over reproductive and sexual rights, demand strong leaders. Councilwoman Jeanne Kohl-Welles is a staunch defender of women’s rights and an indefatigable mentor to a countless number of women. We’re fortunate to have her resolve on the County Council.
– Elaine Taylor Rose, former Chief Executive Officer,
