King County Council shows 12th Man pride

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on January 29th, 2015

For the second year in a row, members of the Metropolitan King County Council and County Executive Dow Constantine have joined 12’s all over the city in showing their support as the Seahawks prepare for their second Super Bowl.

“With great pride we join King County residents in enthusiastically supporting our world champion Seattle Seahawks as they play their second Super Bowl in a row, helping to shine a national spotlight on our great region,” said Council Chair Larry Phillips. “It’s thrilling joining my fellow ‘12s’ in cheering on our remarkable team! Go Hawks!”

“It would be hard to match the most exciting NFL playoff game ever, but the Seahawks have shown a flair for the dramatic,” said Executive Constantine. “The 12s now look forward to seeing the Hawks deflate the Patriots, and make history as repeat Super Bowl champions. Go Hawks.”

“The Seahawks are living proof that teamwork and perseverance pay off,” said Council Vice Chair Jane Hague. “After another magical season, I say “Go Seahawks!”

“I’m so excited for a ‘re-pete’ on Sunday of last year’s Super Bowl,” said Councilmember Kathy Lambert. “This is truly a thrilling time for our entire region. Go Hawks!”

The 12 flag displayed in council chambers will be hoisted up the flagpole in front of the County Administration Building tomorrow when the County declares that Friday is Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Friday in King County!
