In the Briefings

Washington at 215

 
Hundreds gathered in the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday afternoon to join in the state’s 125th birthday celebration. Among the state officials speaking at the event were Gov. Jay Inslee (First Lady Trudi Inslee also spoke) and Secretary of State Kim Wyman. (Here Wyman, at the podium, shares a laugh with the governor, to the right.) Lt. Gov. Brad Owen and Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn also attended. Former Secretary of State Ralph Munro emceed the celebration, which included the introduction of the 2014 Capsule Keepers, who were sworn in by Wyman near the Centennial Time Capsule at the south end of the Legislative Building.

Moving on from the elections, a range of other topics came to the fore last week – education policy, environmental concerns and more. Not to mention the first big snow storm of the season.
