From the Times:
Gov.-elect Jay Inslee named Renton Schools Superintendent Mary Alice
Heuschel as his chief of staff in a news conference in Seattle on
Heuschel, one of three co-chairs of Inslee’s transition team, led
Renton schools for seven years and last year was a finalist for national
superintendent of the year. She also served as deputy superintendent of
the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for six years.
I personally like Superintendent Heuschel and while I don't always agree with her, find her a thoughtful person. I think it's a good call but Renton's loss.
