Pierce and King County Councils to appoint 30th Legislative District Representative

A joint Council meeting will be held by Pierce and King County Councils to appoint a representative for the 30th Legislative District seat on Jan. 13 at 1:30 p.m. This meeting will be held at the Federal Way City Council Chambers, 33325 8th Ave. S. in Federal Way. 

The three candidates submitted by the Democratic party for consideration are Jesse Johnson, Jamila Taylor and Sam Rise. The seat was vacated by Kristine Reeves (D), when she announced her candidacy for the 10th Congressional District seat.

The Constitution of the State of Washington states that vacancies which occur in the house of the legislature shall be filled by appointment by the county legislative authority of the county in which the vacancy occurs. The person appointed to fill the vacancy must be from the same legislative district and the same political party as the legislator whose office has been vacated. The 30th Legislative District includes areas in both King and Pierce Counties.
