    CANTWELL. Mr. President, I join my colleague Senator Murray in commemorating Mayor Haggerton's 30 years of public service. As mayor, Mr. Haggerton led the effort to develop and adopt Tukwila's first strategic plan, [[Page S8374]] providing a clear vision for economic development in the city. Mayor Haggerton was also among the first to offer regional assistance to the Oso, Arlington, and Darrington communities following the devastating State Route 530 mudslide in 2014. Throughout his tenure, Mayor Haggerton has served on multiple regional and national boards and always carried out his job with a passion for and commitment to helping others.

    As our constituents in Washington State know, Mr. Haggerton had a genuine interest in learning about the issues facing those he was elected to serve. He has been an integral leader in Tukwila and played a critical role in shaping the city's history. I have no doubt that Mr. Haggerton's work in Tukwila and the greater Puget Sound region will have a lasting impact on generations for years to come.
