I'm really not sure positions like this should even be elected positions. It seems to be that they should be somewhat insulated from that process, and an appointment and confirmation process, perhaps combined with a single term limit or something would be a better way to deal with these sorts of positions. But in this case we indeed have two candidates:here.
I am the Interim Prosecuting Attorney for King County. I have spent the past 17 years as Norm Maleng’s chief deputy prosecutor, and have experience in every aspect of running the office.I like the bipartisanship and "non-political" bits. I unfortunately have no good way of evaluating this morning if they are true, but even the fact that it is mentioned as a prominent item is a good thing I think.
Today our office is non-political and professional. I want to keep it that way.
That’s one reason why I have the support of more than 500 local attorneys, Democrats, Republicans, business leaders and unions.
These include our nonpartisan Sheriff Sue Rahr, the Democratic prosecutors for Pierce and Snohomish Counties, as well as prominent Republicans.
I was appointed to this post by the unanimous vote of the King County Council.
