Letter to the Editor: ICHS supports Best Starts for Kids

Friday, September 4, 2015

To the Editor

On behalf of the Board of the International Community Health Services (ICHS), I would like to urge voters to vote YES in November on King County Prop 1 – Best Starts for Kids, an initiative that will improve the health and well-being of the community by investing in prevention and early intervention for King County's children, youth, families, and communities.

Our mission at ICHS is to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate health services to improve the health of Asian Pacific Islanders and the broader community. We believe Prop 1 supports our mission by providing targeted help for families in Shoreline and throughout King County to help them raise children who are healthy, strong, and ready to learn.

We know that healthy, safe communities reinforce a child's early progress and ensure everyone has a fair shot at success, regardless of where they live or their family income. Best Starts for Kids will help ensure that income doesn't limit our kids' health and educational future. Public investment is required to make this happen. Let us strengthen our kids and our communities by voting YES on King County Proposition 1.

Gildas Cheung
President, ICHS Board of Directors
