County Supervisors recognized for Military and Guard employee support

The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Patriot Award recognizes supervisor support for employee National Guard and Reserve members, highlighting the contributions, awareness, and care that enable their employees to both serve their country and their organization. Such support includes creating flexible schedules, providing time off before and after deployments, supporting families, and much more.

The ESGR, an official Department of Defense program, has recently bestowed two Patriot Awards to King County supervisors:

  • Jane Corcoran and Amanda Gudmunson from the Department of Executive Services Business Resource Center for their outstanding support of employee Ashley Baker throughout her ongoing service in the Air Force Reserve.
  • Chief Lisa Dove from Metro Transit for outstanding support of employee Chris Cappelletti during his career in the U.S. Coast Guard.

ESGR serves to foster a culture of understanding between employers and members of the Reserve and National Guard. If you are a Reserve or Guard member who wants to nominate your supervisor for the Patriot Award, please visit the ESGR website for more information.
