Message from the Governor

Governor Gary Locke

Thank you for visiting our website. I am delighted that you are seeking information about the state of Washington.

In a democracy, it is very important for people, both young and old, to learn about and observe their government in action. I applaud your interest and urge you to always strive to be an informed and involved citizen.

I also encourage you to read as much and as often as you can. Reading is fun, educational, and will enrich your life. It is also the key to academic success. By reading and working hard in school, you will undoubtedly have a bright future ahead of you.

Best wishes in your studies, and may all your dreams come true!


Gary Locke
