Story

"I am stunned to learn the awful news of Scott's unexpected death.

"Scott was a colleague and a friend, a rising star in the Legislature, and a champion for his district and for King County.

"Scott was always dedicated to public service. At the King County Council I watched as Scott, through persistence and hard work, rose from a position as a policy analyst to become our chief of staff.

"Scott's sense of purpose led to his election first to the State House of Representatives and then to the State Senate, where I came to rely upon his leadership to provide the means for us to save bus service in King County. Scott had a vision, and he delivered.

"I grieve tonight along with Scott's family, his wife Alison and their two young children, and his many friends in the 46th District who recognized as I did his qualities of vision and leadership. He will be deeply missed."
