The Sound Cities Association (SCA) board elected Redmond Mayor John Marchione to serve as its president. SCA represents 36 cities in King County and provides a regional voice for nearly one million people.

“Mayor Marchione’s experience as an outstanding regional leader combined with his diplomatic and communication skills will continue to strengthen SCA as we build partnerships to build long-term community and economic prosperity of our region and state,” commented Renton Mayor Denis Law, who is past president of the SCA.

“SCA provides opportunities for me to better serve the needs of Redmond residents and to create results that improve our entire region,” said Marchione,  “It gives all our member cities a powerful regional voice, provides members an opportunity to connect and network, and offers tremendous tools for cities to learn from each other.”

Marchione explained that SCA provides a voice for King County cities under 150,000 people in population through leadership in areas such as economic and community development, transportation, land use, health, government operations, the environment, education, public safety, social welfare and other public policy issues.

Marchione was first elected to a four-year term as mayor in November 2007 and re-elected in 2011. His regional experience includes representing the City of Redmond on the Cascade Water Alliance Board and as a representative of the Eastside of King County for the Sound Transit Board.

SCA, which was formerly known as the Suburban Cities Association, was established more than 40 years ago to help King County cities act locally and partner regionally to create vital and thriving communities through advocacy, education, leadership, mutual support and networking.
