For the Reporter

Pacific Mayor Leanne Guier has been elected the 2018 vice president of the Sound Cities Association (SCA), which represents 38 King County cities and provides a regional voice for nearly one million people.

“Mayor Guier is an outstanding and dedicated leader who has a reputation for getting things done,” said Deanna Dawson, SCA’s executive director. “We look forward to working with her on addressing the challenges and opportunities that our communities face throughout King County.”

SCA provides regional 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.

The City appointed her mayor in July 2013 after former mayor Cy Sun’s recall and she was elected in 2015. She was appointed to the City Council in 2009. She has served on the Growth Management Planning Council, the King County Flood Control District Advisory Committee and the Metropolitan King County Regional Water Quality Committee.

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.
