Among the areas covered in this morning's discussion, Reich discussed the positive projections for job growth and the rise of home values in greater King County.
"I am pleased with the signs of economic recovery in South King County," said King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer, who hosted the breakfast. "Creating new jobs and improving home values remains my top priority."
Reich directs the Office of Economic and Financial Analysism, which is responsible for the official economic and revenue projections used in the county's budget process.
