Mercer Island City Councilwoman Tana Senn emerged as the frontrunner among three possible replacements to fill the 41st District state representative seat vacated by Marcie Maxwell.
Maxwell, a Democrat, resigned her seat July 9 to take a job with the governor’s office. To fill the seat, members of her party nominated three candidates to replace her and presented those nominations to the King County Council.
The 41st district stretches from the northern parts of Renton to the southern parts of Sammamish, encompassing Mercer Island and Newcastle, and parts of Issaquah and Bellevue.
