DelBene named grand marshal for Memorial Day parade
U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene, whose First Congressional District includes Mill Creek, will be the grand marshal for the city’s Memorial Day parade May 30.
DelBene is a frequent visitor to Mill Creek, and makes it a point to visit Jackson High School at least once a year.
In 2013, she attended the city’s Veterans Day ceremony at the Veterans Monument at Library Park.
“I am committed to working with my colleagues in Congress to ensure all our veterans are receiving the support and benefits that they deserve and have earned,” DelBene writes on her website.
DelBene introduced the Manufacturing Jobs for Veterans Act to accelerate skills training for veterans in manufacturing career pathways and to encourage manufacturers to recruit, hire and train veterans.
