Kitsap delegation in England for air show

July 17th, 2014 by Tad Sooter


Last year a delegation of Kitsap economic development leaders attended the Paris Air Show. This year, it’s England.

County commissioner Charlotte Garrido, Kitsap Aerospace and Defense Alliance co-chair Tim Thomson and John Powers of the Kitsap Economic Development Alliance are at the Farnborough Airshow outside London this week. The trip was organized and funded by KADA.

The Kitsap are meeting with aerospace companies to promote the county’s potential as a manufacturing center. They’re part of a large Washington contingency that includes Gov. Jay Inslee. The air show continues through Saturday.

Pictures from Farnborough are being posted on the KADA Facebook page.

    Which is it?

    England or Eastern Washington?

    Or is he a twin?

  2. Tad Sooter Says:

    Apparently Mr. Inslee’s appearance in England was brief.

  3. Chris Scott Says:

    Apparently Governor Inslee thought it was important enough to come back to support Central Washington which is in a very serious wild fire crisis.
