King County Council Appointment Process Ramps Up - 32nd Dist Rep Cindy Ryu Steps Forward

Who will replace Bob Ferguson on King County Council?

UPDATE: Please note a correction below on location and time of the 46th LD meeting and candidate forum. December 13th at Olympic View Elementary School.

After Bob Ferguson won the Attorney General race decisively, the next question is who will replace him in his King County Council District #1seat. 

Thus far at least seven people have stepped forward expressing interest in the seat.  The position is non-partisan.

Rep Cindy Ryu currently represents the 32nd Legislative District as legislator and has now thrown her hat into the ring. Cindy also served as Mayor of Shoreline and City Councilmember and President of the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce. Her district includes Shoreline, and parts of North Seattle, Edmonds and Lynnwood. She submitted a statement and applied for the position. 

Also stepping forward are:

• Seattle lawyer, Rod Dembowski
• Shoreline Councilmember Will Hall
• Shoreline Planning Commissioner Keith Scully
• Kenmore Mayor Dave Baker
• Assistant King County Ombudsman Chuck Sloan
• Democratic State Committeewoman and Legislative Activist Sarajane Siegfriedt

King County Executive Dow Constantine has established a process to select the next King County Councilmember. His office will appoint an "advisory committee" to review the applicants and send three names to the King County Council. All applications must be submitted by Dec 3rd, 5pm. Questions about the process should be submitted to

The 32nd District Democrats voted to endorse three candidates at their last meeting; Cindy Ryu, Rod Dembowski, and Keith Scully and forwarded those names to the King County Executive. The 46th LD will hold a forum for the candidates on Dec 13th at their special meeting, which will be held at the Olympic View Elementary School at 7pm.


  1. I think Sarajane was offering to step forward as a place-holder just until the election. If they decide to go this route it would be great if she is chosen.

  2. Bob Furgoson is a great man. All over the worlds people are obey him.

  3. Adventure is a state of mind and spirit. It comes with faith, for with complete faith, there is no fear of what faces you in life or death.
