More than 40 of Clark County’s best and brightest visited the Office of Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib Wednesday, chatting about all things leadership-related in a conversation that broached topics ranging from the structure of Washington government to the state of veteran and disability training programs statewide.
“The reality is, these are our community members, these are our family members, these are our friends,” said Habib of veterans and disabled people seeking employment and job skills. “We need to view them not as federal citizens, but Washington state citizens.”
Habib also discussed the state becoming an economic and environmental leader with the Leadership Clark County 2017 class, and the many benefits associated with developing an economy in an environmentally-friendly way.
