Mayor Fred Butler has been reappointed to the Sound Transit Board of Directors, ensuring a key voice for the City of Issaquah on regional transportation issues.
The board chair, King County Executive Dow Constantine, reappointed Butler to a four-year term through Dec. 31, 2017. The reappointment is subject to confirmation by the King County Council.
Butler has served on the Sound Transit board member since 2003, when he was a city councilmember.
“Over the next several years, the services and facilities provided by Sound Transit will play an increasingly important role in addressing our transportation challenges and contributing to the economic development of our region,” Constantine wrote in Butler’s reappointment letter.
Sound Transit is governed by an 18-member board comprised of local elected officials and the secretary of the Washington State Department of Transportation. The board establishes policies, and gives direction and oversight.
