This annual award recognizes the outstanding administrator or manager who has enhanced the effectiveness of local elected officials and consistently initiated creative and successful programs.

The award was presented August 12, 2021 at the WCMA Summer Conference in Blaine. “Receiving this award is a great honor,” said Wilson. “It is also an acknowledgement of the outstanding leadership of the Town Council and Mayor.”

“Friday Harbor benefits from Duncan’s knowledge, experience and contributions to this community,” said Mayor Farhad Ghatan. “With his retirement at the end of this year, it is great to see that he was recognized for his achievements by colleagues from across the State.” Wilson was nominated by the Mayor to recognize not only his current achievements, but his long history of commitment to municipal governance.
