An attorney, a Redmond City Council member or a real-estate broker: one of these is in line to replace chief Democratic budget writer Rep. Ross Hunter, D-Medina.
Hunter announced last month he was leaving the Legislature and his District 48 seat to become director of the Department of Early Learning.
King County Democrats on Wednesday chose lawyer Patty Kuderer, Redmond City Councilmember Kim Allen and real-estate broker Santiago Ramos as potential replacements, according to a statement by the organization.
