    This article looks very familar to a recent article – especially the “brings a wealth of experience” – see below:

    The City of SeaTac has named Cindy Baker as its new Community & Economic Development (CED) Director.

    “Cindy brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience from the Cities of Auburn and Woodinville, as well as King and Kitsap Counties,” the city said in their announcement.

    The position was created in order to direct the new CED department, which has the objective of streamlining the City’s permitting process.

    Anybody would be an improvement from Cindy. That whole department is a train wreck. Get busy Joe or move on.
