Michelle Allison, who has helped shape King County Metro into the regional mobility leader it is today, was named Metro’s Deputy General Manager. Allison served as Interim Deputy General Manager since August and was previously Metro’s Chief of Staff. Terry White, recently confirmed as Metro’s new General Manager, announced the appointment this week.
“I would not have accepted my new position without knowing that Michelle would fill this important role,” said White. “She is a trusted colleague and friend, and I am confident she is the right person to help lead Metro during this challenging time and into the future.”
Allison joined Metro four years ago as its first Chief of Staff. In that role, she strengthened stakeholder partnerships, and grew the agency’s strategic communications and engagement efforts. Allison also oversaw Metro’s transition from a division to a department.
“To say it simply, Michelle knows how to get things done,” said White. “She is an extremely effective leader. I also appreciate how authentic Michelle is – and her values align with Metro’s. She cares deeply about our community, and believes in the power of mobility and the role Metro plays in improving the quality of life in King County.”
Allison began her King County career 11 years ago working in the office of King County Councilmember Jan Drago. She then served for four years as a legislative aide for King County Councilmember Joe McDermott, focusing on transit and land use policy.
Allison later became the Government Relations Lead for the King County Department of Transportation, and then served as the Director of King County Council Relations for Executive Dow Constantine.
How about this one, I can see that Seattle one of the most wealthy cities in this country and it is always crying poor for most employees love to pocket the money and then ask for the poor for more money at is why there too much to of a homeless population . Since you folks cannot see that for eyes are very together seeing that your city is one most cities that popular for the military why can’t you let us ride for those are serving and those that have served to show them some respect for what they have done for you instead of making us sour cats that do not belong in this state to let us ride for free. There should be no excuses to this service for us or grumblings with this idea. Madam, if you can not make this work then you are not right person in that position no matter any body says or thinks.
