That’s what Publicola is reporting:
King County Executive Ron Sims has accepted a post in the Obama administration, according to a source in D.C. Details are sketchy, but Sims, who has been KC Executive since 1996, is reportedly going to D.C. for a job at HUD, the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Calls to the Sims office were not immediately returned this morning.
Hmm… perhaps it was more than just the chocolate that had King County Councilmember Larry Phillips in such high spirits last night at Chocolate for Choice? (Come to think of it, Councilmember Bob Ferguson seemed in pretty good spirits too.)
Sims’ office denies it.
