From the office of Dow Constantine

King County Executive Dow Constantine today mourned the loss of former state legislator and King County Councilmember Audrey Gruger, who passed away unexpectedly Wednesday in San Francisco. Gruger served on the Council from 1982 through 1993, and served as Council Chair in 1986, 1992 and 1993.

“King County has lost one of its finest citizens with the passing of former state legislator and County Councilmember Audrey Gruger.

“Audrey joined the Council in 1982 after defeating a three-term incumbent and served for 12 years, including two stints as Council Chair. She was a leader on growth management and women’s issues, and was much admired for her tireless advocacy for affordable housing and human services.

“On behalf of the employees and all the people of King County, I thank Audrey Gruger for her lasting contributions to our community, and I extend my sincere condolences to her family and friends.”
