Employees across King County worked diligently to coordinate King County’s entry into the 2016 Seattle Pride Parade, and King County Executive Dow Constantine took some time to thank some of them for their efforts.

On Monday, August 1, Executive Constantine dropped in on some of the planners to thank them for their work in coordinating King County’s presence in the parade, which more than 200 employees, family and friends participated in.

He also encouraged the group to develop a “how to” manual which other motivated employees can use to ensure that the County has a presence at other marches and parades.

A big thank you to the members of this year’s planning committee: David Reynolds, Lindsay Bosslet, Cameron Satterfield, Lluvia Ellison-Morales, Gerald Freeman, Marc Alvarado, Leah Holland, Jake Ketchum, Jesse Chipps, Jsani Henry, Carolyn Coleman, Dan Fernandez, Houston Flores, Mike Bailey and Michael Charles.
