Recently, King County Executive Dow Constantine spoke about his “Blueprint For Reform” in a speech to the King County Council where he laid out “a host of immediate and long-term challenges.”

He challenged the Council and the public to:

  • invest… in a 21st century transportation infrastructure,
  • protect… our health and the most vulnerable in our communities,
  • maintain… excellence in public safety and justice for all,
  • and partner… with our cities and regional governments, [and] business and labor leaders, to focus on creating jobs and opportunity.

Next, referring to his draft of the first-ever King County Strategic Plan, he cited four elements of his reform:

  1. Service excellence
  2. A quality workforce
  3. Wise financial stewardship
  4. A robust public engagement

And now, a public Opinionnaire® Survey through has been issued about his “Blueprint for Reform,” where citizens are being asked to take a survey online here.

According to a press release from

One of the under-reported items of the Executive’s “blueprint for reform” is the element for “robust public engagement”. We focus on this element of reform at our new Social Capital Review blog and are highlighting a special online survey to gage the public’s reaction to specific quotations from his speech.

The special Opinionnaire® survey was created by the Forum Foundation “in the spirit of public service to the citizens of King County”. It is based on the same tools used by the Countywide Community Forums — an existing public engagement program from the King County Auditor’s Office that has been used since 2008 for critical feedback from anyone who lives or works in the county.

Registration of King County Citizen Councilors is at

So, if you could spare a few minutes, and like to have your opinion heard, we encourage you to take the survey by clicking here.
