I want to thank you for your leadership of the King County Democrats over the last two years. You stepped forward to lead when it was needed.
At this point in time I need to step back. My son, Shea, begins high school in September, and my activities in politics over the last 3 years have been at the expense of my family. I have come to the point where I need to make a choice. And the choice was easy, once I realized that I was unable to continue to do both. Family comes first.
I hereby resign my position as 3rd Vice Chair of King County. I know you will find someone to take the position and help you lead the party through the end of the cycle.
Leadership comes from example, and it is time I be a good example for my son. Good luck.
