West Seattle scene: ‘First Mike’ reads to Roxhill scholars

The husband of Governor Chris Gregoire was in West Seattle today for a literacy program at Roxhill Elementary School, reading Duck for President to Roxhill scholars and donating books as part of a Reading Is Fundamental initiative involving governors’ spouses.

Mike Gregoire has always asked to be called “First Mike” instead of “First Gentleman” – and he’ll only have that title a little while longer, since his wife is not running for re-election. But “First Mike” pointed out that they have another big change ahead in their lives – their first grandchild is about to be born (as noted by our partners at The Seattle Times back in June). P.S. You’ll see in his bio that he’s the son of a public-school teacher.

    Thanks Mike! It’s a great little school, I’m sure the kids were thrilled!

Sorry, comment time is over.
