For years, Secretary Reed has helped lead efforts to recognize and honor public employees during Public Service Recognition Week each May. During the PSRW event on the Capitol Campus Wednesday, Reed himself was recognized.
State Senator Karen Fraser, who serves Olympia and the rest of the 22nd Legislative District, presented Reed with a special award for co-chairing PSRW since 2001 along with State Auditor Brian Sonntag. Both Reed and Sonntag are retiring from office next January.
The award reads: “In recognition of your dedication and support of public employees through your service to Public Service Recognition Week 2001-2012.”
Other PSRW events are scheduled Thursday in Spokane and the Tri-Cities.
