Mercer Island City Councilwoman Tana Senn is the state’s newest lawmaker, having been appointed to fill the 41st District state representative seat vacated by Marcie Maxwell.
The Metropolitan King County Council appointed her Sept. 9. Senn was the top choice of local Democratic Party officials to fill the vacancy created by Maxwell’s decision to join Gov. Jay Inslee’s education staff.
Since her appointment, Senn, 42, has hit the ground running, meeting with 41st District mayors, and attending local events in the district that stretches from the northern parts of Renton to the southern parts of Sammamish, encompassing Mercer Island and Newcastle, and parts of Issaquah and Bellevue.

New superintendent is ready to hit the ground running
Dear Issaquah School District community,
After more than 12 years here in Issaquah in leadership positions ranging from principal to associate superintendent, I am thrilled to write my first message to you as the new superintendent!
My heart and my passion is for public education, and I want to work together to ensure that every student has a successful and fun experience in their school. As such, one of my top priorities is getting out into the community to hear from you about how we are doing.
