Flag Lowering in Honor of Former Gov. Booth Gardner

It is with deep sadness that Governor Jay Inslee directs flags at all state agency facilities to half-staff on Friday, March 22, 2013, in memory of former Governor Booth Gardner who passed away last Friday night at the age of 76 of complications from Parkinson’s disease.

Please notify your staff and all of your field offices and facilities around the state.

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business on Saturday, March 30 or first thing Monday morning, April 1.

Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.
