46th District Legislators honored by Association of Washington Cities

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

For the past six years, the Association of Washington Cities (AWC) has recognized individuals who go above and beyond for cities during the legislative session. This year they are celebrating four legislators as City Champions.

Rep. Gerry Pollet named
AWC City Champion
Without the commitment and dedication shown by these city supporters, some of our most important accomplishments wouldn’t have materialized.

City Champion Award winners supported affordable housing, local funding and local decision-making.

As the new Chair of the House Local Government Committee, Representative Gerry Pollet (D–46) quickly took on a leadership role for city issues in the House. Representative Pollet spearheaded an effort among House members to support the principles of local decision-making, options, and flexibility. He was a critical voice in recognizing the efforts cities have already taken to address housing issues, and the need for tools and incentives instead of micromanagement.

Sen. David Frockt named
AWC City Champion
Senator David Frockt (D–46) was a key leader on several proposals that were critical to the success cities had in the 2019 session. He played a key role in building Senate support for new funding for affordable housing and was a prime sponsor of legislation providing dedicated stormwater funding to local governments. Sen. Frockt was also a key supporter of funding for local culvert corrections and infrastructure.

Also honored were Representative Keith Goehner (R–Dryden), and Senator Hans Zeiger (R–Puyallup).

The 46th legislative district includes Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, Lake City, NE Seattle.
