Governor Jay Inslee today announced his endorsement of Jeanne Kohl-Welles for King County Council District 4.
“I have worked with Jeanne on issues ranging from expanding childcare to gun safety. She has consistently shown herself to be a fierce advocate and an extremely effective legislator, and I am proud to support her for reelection,” Inslee said.
“The actions taken in King County affect the entire state. I trust Councilmember Kohl-Welles to deliver real results on important issues in our state, including supporting working families, making housing more affordable, and defeating climate change.”
