The King County Council determined its 2013 leadership team earlier this month, with Larry Gossett picked to be council chair for the third year in a row.
Pete von Reichbauer, the councilmember who represents Federal Way and South King County, earned two appointments as a chair of a council committee.
Von Reichbauer will chair the Government Accountability and Oversight committee, which is responsible for making recommendations on "improving efficiency, cost effective and performance of all branches of county government, and enhancing the oversight, accountability and transparency" in county government.
Von Reichbauer will also chair the Regional Policy Committee, which reviews and recommends regional policies and plans that deal with issues other than transit and water quality. This can include public health, human services, open space, housing and so on.
Councilmember Jane Hague will be Gossett's vice chair of regional coordination, and Councilmember Julia Patterson was picked to be vice chair of policy development and review. Patterson will also act as the chair of the council's Committee of the Whole.
