Pete Rose was honored for his service to San Juan County yesterday, Tuesday, May 23, at his last council meeting as county administrator. After six years as administrator, Rose is leaving to become city administrator of Lake Forest Park, Wash., in King County.

In a proclamation, Council chairwoman Patty Miller thanked Rose for his hard work and creativity as the first administrator under the county’s home rule charter, adopted in 2005. The proclamation also noted that Rose must now make a “difficult transition from these beautiful islands to a landlocked city where critical areas are places where unfavorable reviews are posted, and a marine environment is a club with military décor.”

Rose’s last official day on the job is June 8.
