Federal Way expresses concern for sister city Hachinohe in Japan earthquake

Mayor Skip Priest today sent a letter to Hachinohe Mayor Makoto Kobayashi, expressing the concern of Federal Way’s citizens for the people of its sister city, Hachinohe, which was in the earthquake zone for Friday’s powerful earthquake. The Mayor issued the following statement: “All of us here at the City of Federal Way send the citizens of Hachinohe our best wishes and deepest sympathies in the aftermath of Friday’s earthquake in Japan. We sincerely hope that the citizens of Hachinohe are safe and unharmed and that the city and its people recover completely from the earthquake. Our prayers and thoughts are with all of our friends in Hachinohe and with all the citizens of Japan.”

Federal Way and Hachinohe have enjoyed sister city status since 1993.
