Seattle Mayor-elect Ed Murray has announced the members of the committee that will advise his transition and “help solidify his mayoral agenda” as he prepares to assume office in January, according to the Office of the Mayor-elect. The committee of 43 includes at least seven Asian Americans, and several more people of color.
“No transition team can fully capture the breadth of Seattle’s diversity, but this team comes close,” said Murray. “This is what inclusiveness and collaboration look like.”
The transition committee will convene for the first time on Friday (Nov. 22) at the Seattle Center, Olympic Room, from 1:30–4:30 p.m. Doors will open at 1 p.m., and Mayor-elect Murray will speak at 1:45 p.m.
Murray said he would announce several key hires on his executive leadership staff over the coming days. (end)
