Auburn residents are well represented when it comes to job support and training for people with disabilities. The City of Auburn and state Sen. Joe Fain, R-Auburn, were recognized by the Community Employment Alliance at the group's annual meeting in Snoqualmie on Oct. 7.
The “Outstanding Politician” award goes to retiring Democratic state Sen. Tracey Eide, whose contributions to improving our region have been unsurpassed and should serve as an example for others to follow. However, Republican state Sen. Joe Fain, R-Auburn, was a contender as he also distinguished himself and is someone to watch for higher office.
Washington state Sen. Joe Fain believes he has found the perfect job for himself based on his traits: a strong work ethic and “channelable ADD.”Always a curious person, Fain said he expects to be 70 years old and still not be able to answer the question, “what do you want to do with your life?”
