Posted on 16th November 2017 at 08:50

As Democrats take the majority position in the Washington State Senate, 19th District Senator Dean Takko is getting a new appointment. Takko has been named to chair the Local Government Committee in the State Senate; he will also serve as vice-chair of the Economic Development and Trade Committee, and as a member of the Transportation Committee. Senate leaders say that Takko was chosen on his record of accomplishment as an effective legislator, working hard to find compromise instead of conflict. Takko says that the Legislature needs to “lead by example,” making the state a better partner for local governments by reducing the barriers caused by excessive bureaucracy.
