TO: All State Agencies
FROM: Mike Lowry, Governor
SUBJECT: Lowering of the Washington State and United States Flags
I am directing that flags at all state agency facilities be lowered
to half staff today, February 6, in recognition of the passing
of former Washington State Representative James Salatino. This
is a statewide flag lowering.
Representative Salatino who served from 1977 to 1982, represented
the 27th district in Tacoma. He also served on the Pierce County
Council and taught in the public school and community college
"Sal had an enthusiasm and passion for public service that
will be greatly missed," said Gov. Mike Lowry. "We will
long appreciate his contributions to Pierce County and the entire
state of Washington."
The flag lowering shall continue until the evening of February
8th. Please notify all of your remote and branch sites. If you
have any questions please contact Brent Heinemann at (360) 753-6780.
Flags may be raised to full staff at the morning of the following
day, February 9.
