Kent City Councilmember Satwinder Kaur tossed her hat into the ring to run to replace state Sen. Mona Das, who announced last week that she is not running for re-election.
Das held the 47th District State Senate seat since being elected in 2018, when she defeated incumbent Joe Fain. Her current term expires Dec. 21, 2022.
In a Facebook announcement, Kaur said, “I appreciate Senator Das and all her service to her community. As many of you know, I have been looking to deepen my commitment to public service. This is an exciting opportunity.”
Kaur was elected to the Kent City Council in 2017.
