King County Assessor John Wilson is one of six county officials from around the country appointed by the National Association of Counties. (NACo) to a new 2020 Census Working Group. This group will share best practices being used by counties to help ensure an accurate and complete count.

“I am pleased NACo has asked me to join in this effort,” Wilson said. “A complete and accurate count next year is vital to King County and to all county governments.”

Wilson has a long history of leadership on this issue.

In 2010, the Census Bureau asked Wilson, as King County’s Chief Deputy Assessor, to participate in a pilot program in support of their new TIGER system, which describes land attributes such as roads, buildings, rivers and lakes. Earlier this year he was one of 190 bipartisan state and local elected officials and municipalities around the country, including 24 city, county, and state officials from Washington, who signed an amicus brief in support of one of the lawsuits challenging inclusion of the citizenship question.
