Officials meet Friday to pick Angel’s replacement in the House

Kitsap County commissioners and Pierce County Council members will meet together today in Gig Harbor to select one of three Republican candidates to fill former State Rep. Jan Angel’s seat in the state House.

The meeting is set for 10 a.m. at the Gig Harbor Civic Center located at 3510 Grandview St.

Angel (R-Port Orchard) defeated Sen. Nathan Schlicher in November to become the 26th Legislative District state senator.

In December, Jesse Young, Adam Berman and Doug Cloud were tabbed as the top three candidates to fill Angel’s vacancy by district’s precinct committee officers.

Young finished as the PCOs’ top choice, followed by Berman and Cloud, respectively.

There will be three commissioners — all Democrats — from Kitsap County and seven Pierce County Council members, who will weigh on the decision. Five of the seven Council members are Republican

Schlicher served one year as senator after being selected last January to replace Sen. Derek Kilmer (D-Gig Harbor), who was elected to fill Norm Dicks’ seat in the Sixth Congressional District.
