Bothell City Council has officially recognized Juneteeth, a combination of “June” and the “Nineteenth”, the date that commemorates when enslaved Black Texans were finally informed that slavery had ended in the Confederate states two years prior. A Proclamation acknowledging the importance of this day was presented by Mayor Olsen at the June 16 City Council meeting. It was received by Councilmember McNeal, who spoke to how proud he is to call Bothell home and the ways Bothell has shown up for equity and justice.
