CITY COUNCIL STATEMENT ON GARY LOCKE’S NOMINATION AS COMMERCE SECRETARY

“The Seattle City Council congratulates Gary Locke on his nomination by President Barack Obama as U.S. Commerce Secretary.

“As our former governor, King County executive, and state legislator, Gary Locke, if confirmed, will bring a wealth of expertise and experience to the Department of Commerce. Locke’s experience in governing a Pacific Rim state and in international trade will bring valuable perspective and insight to U.S. trade policies at a time when international trade has become fundamental to recovering our regional, national and global economies.

“A native of Seattle, Governor Locke is the third leader from our city to be tapped by President Obama for a post in his administration. The Council is proud of Gary’s selection and wishes him great success.”
