No, not the type requiring bleeps. Actually, Secretary Reed spent part of Wednesday participating in separate county swearing-in ceremonies in Kelso and Olympia.
The Secretary traveled south in the morning to the Cowlitz County Courthouse to swear in County Commissioners Mike Karnofski and Dennis Weber (in photo above), and PUD Commissioner Kurt Anagnostou.
After returning to Olympia, Reed made the short trek around Capitol Lake and up the hill to the Thurston County Courthouse to take part in an afternoon swearing-in ceremony for County Commissioners Sandra Romero and Cathy Wolfe, Thurston County Superior Court Judges Christine Schaller and Erik Price, and Thurston PUD Commissioner Linda Oosterman. Reed didn’t swear in any of the Thurston officials, but he gave a keynote speech on leadership.
