Senator expected to step down prior to start of 2022 legislative session
Sen. Ann Rivers recently announced her intention to vacate her Washington State Senate seat. The 18th Legislative District Republican Committee had their quarterly meeting Tuesday and outlined a process to recruit potential nominees to replace their state senator when her retirement becomes effective.
An 18th Legislative District Committee special meeting will be held on Sat., Nov. 20, 2021, at 9 a.m., to select and rank three nominees. Each candidate will introduce themselves to the Precinct Committee Officers of the 18th Legislative District and answer questions. The top three nominees will be forwarded to the Clark County Republican Central Committee for ratification. Per the Washington State Constitution, the three nominees will ultimately be sent to the Clark County Council for the final selection of Senator Rivers’ replacement.
