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.
