Town Hall will discuss public health, county services for immigrants

Metropolitan King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer will host a Town Hall meeting on public health and county services from 7-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 5. at Thomas Jefferson High School, 4248 S. 288th St, Auburn.

A panel discussion will focus on the variety of services the county provides, specifically for first-generation and immigrant communities. There will be Russian, Korean, and Spanish speaking translators available, and there will be time for questions after each panelist’s presentation.

The panel of King County public officials includes: Patty Hayes, director of Public Health – Seattle and King County; Maj. Greg Thomas with the King County Sheriff’s Office; Julie Wise, director of King County Elections; Stephen Smith, interim director of the King County Library System; and a senior representative from King County Metro.

“King County provides a variety of services to our community, but many new residents don’t realize the resources that exist,” von Reichbauer said in a media release. “These resources can be particularly helpful for immigrant communities as they assimilate and adjust to life in South King County.”

For more information, contact von Reichbauer at 206-477-1007 or pete.vonreichbauer@kingcounty.gov.
