King County appointed a Vietnamese-speaking representative to its Citizens’ Elections Oversight Committee last week, selecting Linh Thai, Community Liaison of Congressman Adam Smith’s office, to fill the role. A naturalized citizen, Thai will be serving on the committee until December 2017.

The goal of the committee is to monitor county elections and recommend improvements to the performance and accountability of the King County Elections System. The 14 members of the community are made up of representatives from The Municipal League, The League of Women Voters (Marilyn Knight), The King County and state Republican and Democratic Parties(Emily Willoughby, James Rigby, Paul Berry, and Monica Tracey), the King County junior taxing district (Frank Radford), an independent research and policy institute, the Washington State Auditors Association (Kim Wyman), the office of the Washington Secretary of State (Sheryl Moss), the Chinese-speaking community, the Vietnamese-speaking community (Linh Thai), and two registered voters (Ellen Hansen and Ross Marzolf).

The seat for the Chinese-speaking representative is currently vacant. (end)
