This afternoon, Representatives Dave Reichert (WA-08) and Suzan DelBene (WA-01) honored the centennial anniversary of the City of Redmond. They presented Redmond Mayor John Marchione and members of the Redmond City Council with a joint Statement to the Record as well as a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol on December 31, 2012, the date of Redmond's centennial.
"I am grateful for this opportunity to recognize and applaud the City of Redmond's achievements over the last one hundred years," said Reichert. "Their success is a true lesson in the importance of community involvement and entrepreneurship. I wish them another century of prosperity."
"Over the last 100 years, Redmond has evolved from a small logging town into a vibrant urban center, home to some of the most innovative and prominent technology companies in the world," said DelBene. "I look forward to working with Mayor Marchione and all of Redmond's City Council to continue to build on the city's rich history and helping it continue to thrive and prosper into it's second century."
