Brian Deagle, a senior attorney at Microsoft, was unanimously appointed to fill a vacancy on the Issaquah School Board. But it almost didn’t happen.
The board initially deadlocked: two in favor of candidate Leigh Stokes and two in favor of candidate David Irons.
After further discussion in closed session, the board returned with undivided support for Deagle.
I understand that Irons‘ next attempt at a political comeback will be a run for dogcatcher.
