|Rep Marko Liias (D) Dist-21|
Everett Herald -
"...Rep. Marko Liias, D-Edmonds, is expected next week to announce he's forming a committee to explore a run for Inslee's seat - should the incumbent not seek re-election.
Liias said the purpose of the committee “is to determine if I am the right candidate and is this the right time. And it is definitely to send a signal inside Washington and outside the state that I'm serious about it.”Marko Liias is in his second elected term in the State House, and has championed many progressive issues and challenged the main stream with alternative legislative proposals, such as the Trans-Alta House Bill this session. He now serves on the Technology, Energy & Communications
Transportation (Vice Chair) Committees.
Before he was appointed to the Legislature, he served on the Mukilteo City Council.
