Ron Sims’ replacement whittled down to four names

The field for a prospective appointment as King County Executive was narrowed to four as members of the Metropolitan King County Council submitted the names for evaluation by a Blue-Ribbon Committee, which is has two Asian American members, Sharon Maeda and Ted Choi Tam, on Monday, April 13.

“We’ve generated a strong field of candidates for interim executive from across the county, each with significant support from individual council members,” said Council Chair Dow Constantine. “The Blue-Ribbon Committee will provide an expedited but thorough review of these candidates to aid the council in making its final choice.”

\Under legislation adopted April 6, each candidate must be nominated by at least three council members in order to be forwarded to the Blue-Ribbon Committee. Final authority to make the appointment rests with the council.

The nominees are: former County Councilmember Steve Hammond, former County Councilmember Louise Miller, former Seattle Mayor Charles Royer, and King County Executive Chief of Staff Kurt Triplett.
