Dwight Dively, CFO, City of Seattle

Original Post:  26 April 2008
Dwight Dively is Public Employee of the Year, an annual award given by the Municipal League of Seattle/King County  The Award was presented on Thursday, April 24th, in a ceremony at the Paccar Pavilion in the Olympic Sculpture Park on Seattle’s Waterfront.   Dwight is Chief Financial Officer for the City of Seattle, and a financial whiz.   He’s universally respected within the City government, but – more importantly – also well respected on Wall Street which gives the City’s bonds an an (S&P) AAA bond rating.
But Dwight is something more – he’s a wonderful person, caring, patient, and a great teacher – he practices teaching not only at work but in the degree programs of the Evans School at the University of Washington.   He even reads and responds to his e-mail!   All in all, a well deserved honor.
P.S. A note to the Muni League – thanks for having these awards, but next time I suggest you hold them in a venue where the room encourages people to listen, rather than talk during the awards presentations!
