Senator Jeanne Kohl-Welles, after 25 years of incredible service in the state legislature, is running for the King County Council. After her very likely win, we will have a vacancy in our legislative delegation. This will kick off an appointment process in both the Senate and the House.Elected and Appointed PCOs are given the opportunity to elect their top three choices for each vacancy. There will be a meeting in early December to do so.After the Elected and Appointed PCOs have chosen their top three names for each vacancy, those names will be sent to the King County Council in ranked order, and the appointment will be made.
Although no vacancy is open yet, there are a number of individuals who are interested in campaigning for the appointment. The policy of the 36th requires the organization to provide PCOs’ contact information to potential aspirants once they have declared their interest by submitting the following:
