King County Council member Pete von Reichbauer and other officials host a town hall meeting on public health and county services on Tuesday, Dec. 5,

The gathering is from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Thomas Jefferson High School, 4248 S. 288th St., Auburn.

The panel of King County public officials includes:

• Patty Hayes, Director of Public Health – Seattle and King County

• Major Greg Thomas with the King County Sheriff’s Office

• Director Julie Wise of King County Elections

• Director Stephen Smith of King County Libraries

• A senior representative from King County Metro

The panel discussion will focus on the variety of services the county provides, specifically for first-generation and immigrant communities. There will be Russian, Korean and Spanish speaking translators available to assist attendees who speak English as a second language, and there will be time for questions after each panelist’s presentation.

“King County provides a variety of services to our community, but many new residents don’t realize the resources that exist,” von Reichbauer said. “These resources can be particularly helpful for immigrant communities as they assimilate and adjust to life in South King County.”

For additional information, contact von Reichbauer at 206-477-1007, or
