Executive Dow Constantine to County Council: Support our seniors, housing and vets

Friday, July 14, 2017

The Regional Policy Committee of the King County Metropolitan Council on Wednesday passed an ordinance to place the Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy on the November ballot at 10 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.

The package – a replacement of the 6-year Veterans and Human Services Levy which expires this year – adds new programs, rental assistance and housing stability for older residents.

The full King County Council will vote Monday on the final Veterans, Seniors and Human Services measure to go on the ballot.

"It's no secret our population is getting older, and funding for seniors is under attack," said Executive Constantine. 
"The Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy is a balanced package that meets our obligation to veterans, domestic violence survivors, people experiencing homelessness and others, while adding funding to help our older residents stay connected and healthy. 
"It is our moral responsibility to make certain the generation that built this region's prosperity can live securely and in good health, and remain active in their community."
