Governor of Washington. Tweets on innovation, jobs, education, clean energy & my grandkids. Building a WA that works for everyone. RTs & follows ≠ endorsement
Today, we honor the men and women who gave everything for something greater than themselves. Our nation is forever in their debt. May we honor their sacrifices by living the values they fought to defend - and in service of one another. Happy Memorial Day.
Good news: one-third of our state is now eligible to move into Phase 2. And 4 new counties were approved for Phase 2 today. They are: ✅ Adams ✅ Grays Harbor ✅ Lewis ✅ Spokane We are making good progress.
Case and contact tracing is how we can reopen slowly and contain COVID-19. It is: ✅ confidential ✅ voluntary ✅ 100% focused on keeping you and those close to you safe
My single focus is and will continue to be the health and well-being of Washingtonians. It's important for leaders to speak with one voice. I just wish the president and vice president could get on the same page.
Washington state will act under our own authority, our own laws and our own jurisdiction to protect #NetNeutrality for all of Washington's citizens.
Most Washingtonians are helping slow COVID-19’s spread by practicing strong social distancing. To those of you that can be but are choosing not to: Your actions could kill someone. Stop it.
While fighting COVID-19, we must also fight against rumors and false information. Let me be clear: Neither me nor my staff are engaged in conversations to quarantine or seal off any part of Washington state.
I encourage political leaders to speak out firmly against the president’s calls for rebellion. Americans need to work together to protect each other. That’s what is working in WA. And it’s the only way to slow the spread of this virus and get us on the road to recovery. 7/7
