Bellevue Patch writes:
The King County Council on Thursday selected two local legislators to fill two vacancies in the 48th Legislative District.
To replace newly elected Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib, the council chose state Rep. Patty Kuderer, D-Clyde Hill. That selection leaves Kuderer’s seat open, so the council chose Bellevue Councilwoman Vandana Slatter to fill it.
