Redmond City Councilmember Hank Margeson has been selected to serve as the 2019 treasurer of the Sound Cities Association (SCA), which represents 38 King County cities and provides a regional voice for more than one million people.

He will be one of five individuals to serve on the SCA executive committee.

“Councilmember Margeson will help SCA continue to be an important regional catalyst in addressing the challenges and opportunities that face King County communities,” said Deanna Dawson, SCA executive director in a press release. “He has a tremendous track record in creating innovative partnership and initiatives that create solutions to local and regional issues. We look forward to his leadership in the coming year.”

In the release, King County Councilmember Claudia Balducci added, “Councilmember Margeson has a long history of leading on regional issues and I am pleased that he has been elected treasurer of the SCA board. In my experience, he shows up, he pays attention and he asks hard questions. All of which make him a great choice to help lead SCA. I look forward to working with him in his new role and wish him great success.”

Margeson was elected to the Redmond council in November 2007 and is now serving his third term. He has been the city’s representative on the SCA public issues committee (SCA PIC) since 2009, according to the release. During his tenure, he served a term as the vice chair and chaired the SCA PIC nominating committee until 2015. In December 2017, he was re-elected to represent the northeastern King County cities on the SCA board of directors for another two years, where he’s served on the finance committee and board nominating committee.

He is now on his eighth year on the Puget Sound Regional Committee’s growth management planning board, serving as the board’s vice president, the release states. He was appointed as a member of the King County regional transit committee in 2018 after serving two years as an alternate.
