The Metropolitan King County Council has recognized Don Davidson for his public service in Bellevue as mayor, councilmember and regional leader.

“We are recognizing an individual whose name is synonymous with public service,” said Jane Hague, council vice chair who represents part of Bellevue. “Don Davidson also put his heart and soul into good government, planning and community involvement.”

“During his time of public service, Don was a dedicated public servant who worked tirelessly on behalf of the residents of Bellevue,” said Councilmember Reagan Dunn, who also represents part of Bellevue. “I am proud to have worked alongside Dr. Davidson for a number of years, and I look forward to his continued advocacy on issues he is most passionate about.”

Davidson has the distinction of serving the citizens of Bellevue on the Bellevue City Council for 27 years, longer than any sitting Councilmember now or in the past. That includes two terms as mayor and one as mayor pro tem. He also served on numerous boards and commissions.

Regionally he served as president of the Association of Washington Cities, was a member of the Governor’s Intergovernmental Relations Commission, as well as being active in the Suburban Cities Association.

His community involvement includes organizations such as the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce (where he served as president), Overlake Hospital board, Cascade Water Alliance, the King County Visitors and Convention Bureau and the Seattle-King County Economic Development Council.
