Municipal League rates candidates for county elections director

The Municipal League of King County has rated Sherril Huff and David Irons as “outstanding” candidates for the position of King County Elections Director. In addition, the League rated Bill Anderson “very good,” and Chris Clifford, Julie Kempf and Pam Roach as “adequate.”

Voters will select the new elections director by special election Feb. 3.

The nonpartisan ratings are based on four criteria: Knowledge, involvement, effectiveness and character. The ratings don’t consider political affiliations or stands on specific issues. Candidates also aren’t rated against each other.

The ratings are the result of the work of citizens from around King County who volunteered for a special candidate evaluation committee over the last month. To view candidate questionnaires and more detailed information about the rating process, see
