Cindy Ryu, State Representative of the 32nd Legislative District, is one of 13 residents who have applied to fill Attorney General-elect Bob Ferguson’s King County Council seat, when he vacates it on Jan. 16, 2013.
Ryu was re-elected by a landslide 76–23 percent victory in the November election.
King County Executive Dow Constantine will name members of an advisory committee this week, representative of Council District 1, to evaluate the 13 applicants. The committee will forward the names of qualified candidates to Constantine. Under state law, the executive is required to present three names to the County Council when the seat is vacated. The council will then have 60 days to fill the vacant position. Other candidates include David Baker, Dennis Behrend, Tiffany Bond, Rod Dembowski, Chris Eggen, Ken Goodwin, Will Hall, Bob Ransom, Keith Scully, Sarajane Siegfriedt, Chuck Sloane, and Naomi Wilson.
