It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Councilmember Steve King. In Steve’s 10 years of service on the City Council, he became known as someone who was not afraid to be the lone voice of dissent on any given issue; often championing the cause of the less fortunate. Moreover, he earned the respect of his fellow councilmembers by his ability to disagree and debate with civility and thoughtfulness.
For his constituents, Steve was a strong advocate, often calling state and federal politicians and agencies directly to inquire about new laws and policies. Steve was many things to many people, including school bus driver, barber, and Air Force veteran, to name a few.
What he was to all of us was an indelible part of our community.
