The Bellevue Reporter writes:
After a whirlwind week of legislative positions opening up and being filled, Vandana Slatter is ready to get to work.
Slatter — the newly-appointed representative of the 48th Legislative District — resigned her position on the Bellevue City Council Monday night before she heads to Olympia.
She was appointed to the representative role after Rep. Patty Kuderer was appointed to fill the 48th’s Senate seat, vacated by Cyrus Habib after his election to the lieutenant governor position.
“With the size of Bellevue’s economy, I do not believe I’d have the bandwidth to do both jobs,” Slatter said. “I’m honored to serve in this new capacity, and support Bellevue in this new capacity, as well as Kirkland and Redmond.”
