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!

    Very good recognition for Dwight. As for the venue, many people go for the shmoozing, not for the awards, so one shouldn’t be too surprised at the noise level.
