Two candidates file for fire district 10 seat
October 8, 2013
Two candidates have filed to run for the open commissioner seat No. 3 position in King County Fire Protection District No. 10.
Financial adviser Larry Rude will run against Snoqualmie Tribe member Ray Mullen.
Retired fire officer Rick Gaines remains unopposed to retain his commissioner’s seat No. 4.
Both seats are part of a board of commissioners that governs District 10.
Fire District 10 was formed in June 1941, after a number of hearings and a vote of the King County Commissioners. The new district became the largest in the county at that time, and after several annexations, is 110 square miles in size today.
On Jan. 1, 1999, the city of Issaquah and Fire District 10 combined to form Eastside Fire & Rescue. In January 2000, the city of North Bend, Sammamish and Fire District 38 joined the consolidation and the partnership.
The general election is Nov. 5.
