Continuation of Veterans' Levy will be on the November ballot

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

On Monday, King County Executive Dow Constantine announced an initiative to strengthen the county’s capacity to connect veterans to opportunity, help veterans, seniors, and vulnerable populations gain or maintain affordable housing, and add new services to help the region's rapidly growing senior population.

If approved by voters in November, the Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy will replace the existing levy, which will expire December 31. The current levy – which King County voters overwhelmingly renewed in 2011 – has connected hundreds of thousands of veterans, active service members and vulnerable populations to housing, employment and treatment since it was first approved in 2005.

“It is an honor for us to serve the men and women who have served our country. When asked, King County voters have enthusiastically agreed. This levy renewal focuses on the health and welfare of veterans and others in need. It ensures that we follow best practices and support programs that get the results we all want,” said Executive Constantine. 
“Demographic trends are clear: our region is aging. By helping people remain in good health and active in the community, we can ensure that all residents enjoy their lives to the fullest."
