Lacey deputy mayor elected to Association of Washington Cities Board of Directors

Olympia – The Association of Washington Cities (AWC) announced that Lacey deputy mayor Cynthia Pratt was recently elected to its 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 Business Meeting on June 23 in Everett. She serves district 6, which includes 27 cities and towns in Thurston County and Pierce County. Pratt has served on the Lacey city council since 2010.

The AWC Board of Directors is the association’s governing body. The board is comprised of 25 directors, 23 of whom are mayors or city councilmembers from Washington cities or towns, and two non-elected city officials who also serve as the president and past president of the Washington City/County Management Association.

AWC’s mission is to serve its members through advocacy, education and services. 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 with regulatory agencies. Membership is voluntary. However, AWC consistently maintains 100 percent participation from Washington’s 281 cities and towns.
