King County Executive, Opening Remarks
Executive Constantine has proposed Best Starts for Kids, his initiative to put every child in King County on a path toward lifelong success.
Prior to becoming King County Executive in 2009, Executive Constantine served on the King County Council and in the Washington State Senate and House of Representatives. He graduated from West Seattle High School and the University of Washington, earning a Bachelor’s degree in political science, a law degree, and a Master’s degree in urban planning. Executive Constantine lives with his wife, Shirley, and their daughter in West Seattle.
A good friend to Seattle Milk Fund, Angela hosted our most recent auction—in which she helped raise more than $170,000 for Seattle Milk Fund families. We are thrilled to have her back to host our Benefit Luncheon.
As the former Co-Anchor on KIRO 7 Eyewitness News, Angela has covered some of the most significant stories in recent memory. She traveled to Haiti in 2010 to cover the aftermath of the earthquake. And in 2011, Angela conducted a one-on-one White House interview with President Obama. She is currently taking time off to focus on her writing and to spend time with her two girls.
Youth Advocate, Keynote Speaker
After appearing on ABC’s The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick created Project Parachute—a national nonprofit that supported single parents with child care grants so they could attend college.
A Pacific Northwest native, Jason graduated from Lake Washington High School and the University of Washington. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Puget Sound. Today, Jason is a real estate broker, and lives with his wife, Molly, and their two children in Kirkland.
