Deputy Mayor Kim visits Korean sister city Daejeon

While Mayor Murray visited Seattle’s Irish Sister City, Galway, this week, Deputy Mayor Hyeok Kim was also abroad visiting another of Seattle’s Sister Cities — Daejeon, Korea.

Deputy Mayor Kim made courtesy calls with Daejeon Mayor Kwon Sun-taik and Chairwoman Kim In-sik (pictured above with Deputy Mayor Kim), who became the first woman ever to serve as Chair of the Daejeon Metropolitan City Council when she was elected this past June.

Deputy Mayor Kim attended the opening day of the Daejeon International Food and Wine Festival and invited Mayor Kwon to visit Seattle next spring to visit Taste Washington, March 28-29, 2015.
