The East King County Chambers Coalition has announced its annual legislative breakfast will be held at 7:30 to 9 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 4, at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue.

Each January, the coalition kicks off the New Year with a breakfast a few days before the Legislature convenes. Representatives of the East King County business community gather to hear what Eastside legislators will prioritize in the coming 60-day regular session, and to share a few ideas of their own.

From boosting career and technical education at all levels, to addressing the housing affordability crisis and increasing mobility with disruptive transportation technologies, this year’s breakfast promises no shortage of hot topics.

All who are interested in the legislative process, including business owners and operators, non-profit leaders and educators, local elected officials and members of the general public are welcome to attend.
