Julia Patterson: County Council #5, King County
Julia Patterson is committed to preserving our unique environment in King County. Patterson understands the need to keep urban areas dense and connected through mass transit as well as the need to protect the county’s rural areas from sprawl. She currently chairs the Transportation Policy Board on the Council. She also helped secure state funds for multi-modal transportation for the county. She helped pass the Critical Areas Ordinance which protects our ground-water and limits clear-cuts.
Patterson knows that maintaining King County’s urban/rural balance affords our community the great quality of life that we cherish in the Pacific Northwest.
