Sen. Mark Mullet, D-Issaquah, was named a City Champion today by the Association of Washington Cities.

One of several legislators who were honored today by the association, Mullet was chosen for his work on multiple fronts during the 2015 legislative session. The association lauded Mullet for his efforts to maintain critical city financial support, including help to secure previously reduced liquor tax revenues to protect local public safety, and for advocating the critical importance of local infrastructure programs.

“Though much of what we do as legislators has statewide impact, I try to focus particularly on the needs of our local community, which otherwise might be shortchanged in the overall scheme of things,” Mullet said. “As the senator for our area, I see it as my responsibility to make sure our community’s needs are known and addressed effectively.”

The association is a non-partisan, Olympia-based organization that advocates on behalf of the state’s 281 cities and towns.
