Gov. Jay Inslee today delivered the 2021 inaugural address as he begins his historic third term as governor of the state of Washington.
Prior to the address, the governor and Washington’s eight other newly-elected and re-elected officials were sworn in to office by Chief Justice Steven González.
The governor delivered the address via video, a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and new security concerns.
