Story

King County Executive Dow Constantine praises unanimous U.S. Senate decision confirming Gary Locke as the new China envoy:

“I congratulate Gary Locke and send my best wishes to him and his family as he embarks on his new career as the United States Ambassador to China.

“King County residents benefited from his leadership when he served previously as County Executive, Washington State Governor and as U.S. Commerce Secretary. I know that he will be a tremendous asset to our region and nation as we strengthen our partnership with our neighbors across the Pacific.
