Algona Mayor Dave Hill has been elected a member-at-large of the Sound City Association's executive committee, which represents 36 cities in King County and provides a regional voice for nearly one million people.

Hill is one of four SCA board officers.

"Mayor Hill's leadership, problem solving skills and vision will help SCA address the opportunities and challenges facing our region today," said SCA Executive Director Deanna Dawson.

"SCA creates opportunities for me to better serve Algona residents and to create results that improve our entire region," Hill said.

Hill said 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.

Hill has been a resident and active resident of Algona for more than 20 years. He decided to run for City Council in 2003. While on the council, he served as mayor pro tem for two years. In October of 2006, Mayor Joe Scholz moved out of town and the City Council appointed Hill the position of mayor for remainder of the term. In November 2007 he was successfully elected mayor, served that term and was again elected in 2011.

Hill represents Algona as an active member with several organizations, including the South County Area Transportation Board (ScatBd) and the Valley Cities Association, an organization of Valley City Mayors and Chambers of Commerce. He also represents the Sound Cities Association at the following committees: Regional Transit Committee(King County Metro); Puget Sound Regional Council(PSRC); and, Transportation Policy Board as a representative of "Other King County Cities."

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.
