Proven Progressive Results

Thank you for visiting my site. I am proud to serve as your Chair of the King County Council and to represent Council District 8, which stretches from Vashon Island and Burien, up through White Center, West Seattle, the Chinatown International District to First Hill in Seattle.

The challenges we face in King County continue to require sound, progressive solutions - from protecting our friends and neighbors in immigrant and refugee communities against the aggressive and divisive actions taken by the Trump administration, to finding pathways to secure housing for the men, women and children who are experiencing homelessness throughout the region, and ensuring continued economic growth in our region that is equitable and provides opportunity for all residents.

We can solve all of these challenges, but we must remain dedicated and vigilant. I know this because I’ve done it — here together with all of you for the past 16 years — from the State Legislature to the King County Council.

Please keep up with my work at the County at my official Facebook Page, or you can always reach me through my campaign site here at friends@joemcdermott.org.
