Washington County to hold virtual State of the County event
Washington County commissioners will reflect on the challenges of 2020 and forecast priorities for 2021 during a virtual State of the County event Monday, April 19.
Kathryn Harrington, chair of the Board of Commissioners, will lead the annual update to residents of Oregon's second-most populous county for the second time. Harrington was elected to a four-year term in 2018.
Last year's State of the County event, scheduled at Century High School, was canceled amid the early weeks of the coronavirus pandemic.
At this year's event, Harrington will be joined by board Vice Chair Pam Treece and Commissioners Jerry Willey, Nafisa Fai and Roy Rogers.
Fai is in the first year of a four-year term after being elected in 2020. Rogers won re-election to a 10th term in 2020.
Each commissioner will also discuss their individual priorities for 2021, county officials said in a statement announcing the event.
The one-hour event will begin at 6 p.m.
People can watch the presentation on the county's YouTube page in English or in Spanish on Tualatin Valley Community TV. The county may translate the presentation into other languages upon request by April 12.
