Lt. Governor Discusses Job Growth with Group of Associate Development Organization Executives

On Wednesday, Lt. Gov. Habib met with the heads of several of the state’s economic development councils to discuss the important work that they and other Associate Development Organizations (ADOs) are doing throughout the state to grow jobs.

Each county in Washington is represented by an ADO. ADOs perform a crucial role for the state, leveraging state funding from the Department of Commerce to obtain financial support from their local and regional partners, creating jobs, and stimulating business growth and capital investment.

Lt. Gov. Habib was pleased to meet with the EDCs of King, Kitsap, Snohomish, Spokane, and Vancouver for a constructive dialogue and is looking forward to working with other ADOs statewide on economic development projects to create a more prosperous Washington for all.
