The Sound Cities Association (SCA) honored Mayor Ken Hearing with a Member Emeritus 2019 Award. SCA presented the award to Mayor Hearing on December 4th at the Renton Pavilion Event Center during the 2020 SCA Annual Meeting.
Mayor Hearing, along with nine other councilmembers and mayors, was recognized for his support and extraordinary service to SCA over the years. Mayor Hearing has served in many capacities, including on the SCA Board of Directors and as President of the Board. He has also served on several committees, including the SCA Nominating Committee, SCA Public Issues Committee, Puget Sound Regional Council’s Executive Board, Growth Management Planning Board, King County Consortium Joint Recommendations Committee for Community Development Block Grant Program, School Siting Task Force, Affordable Housing Task Force and Affordable Housing Committee. He was also the City’s representative to the Snoqualmie Valley Governments Association.
“I am proud to have served on the SCA along with many other esteemed colleagues for the past 16 years,” Mayor Hearing said. “It has been a privilege to be part of an organization that has contributed so much to our communities.”
The Emeritus Award was established to recognize those retiring from office who have contributed to the success, growth, and viability of SCA through committee work, outreach, and governance. Since the inception of SCA in the 1970s, there have only been 16 Emeritus Award recipients. On December 4th, that total jumped to 26.
SCA was founded in the 1970s to help cities act locally and partner regionally to create vital, livable communities through advocacy, education, leadership, mutual support and networking. It represents 38 cities of King County and provides a voice for over one million people.
