LACEY DEPUTY MAYOR ELECTED TO ASSOCIATION OF WASHINGTON CITIES BOARD OF DIRECTORS
LACEY, WA, July 7, 2016: The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) recently announced that Lacey Deputy Mayor Cynthia Pratt has been elected to the association’s board of directors.
“Being on AWC’s board of directors not only gives me the opportunity to represent towns and cities surrounding the state capital,” said Pratt, “but also to represent those smaller, more rural towns and cities, similar to those from which I grew up.”
Pratt was elected to the AWC board during the association’s June 23 business meeting in Everett. She will serve District 6, which includes 27 cities and towns in Thurston and Pierce counties. Pratt has served on the Lacey City Council since 2010, and as Deputy Mayor since 2014.
Founded in 1933, AWC is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation that represents Washington's cities and towns before the state legislature, the state executive branch, and regulatory agencies. Statewide, 281 cities and towns are members of the association.
