The state’s Employment Security administrator for WorkSource Pierce County will visit the county’s executive cabinet meeting tomorrow morning to award a 2017 Hire-A-Vet award.

Since January 2017, county government administrators have made a concerted effort to recruit and hire veterans to local government positions. This year alone, Pierce County has added 26 veterans to a variety of high-pay positions, by participating in numerous hiring events and brown bag lunches.

Pierce County also takes part in the statewide YesVets program.

Tuesday’s award presentation will be at 10:30 a.m. on the 7th floor of Pierce County City Building.
