To fill the seat vacated by Bob Ferguson as he ascends to the office of the Attorney General, Executive Constantine nominated three candidates, from which the Council will pick its next member.
The nominees are real estate attorney and Democratic Party insider Rod Dembowski, Shoreline Councilman Will Hall, and State Rep. Cindy Ryu. STB endorsed Hall for the position and gave Dembowski an honorable mention, so it appears Mr. Constantine couldn’t have done any better from our perspective.
The Council is required to act by March 17th. It never hurts to let your Councilmember know how you want them to vote, as the County is probably the most important level of government for transit issues.
