BREAKING: Burien Council Chooses 3 Finalists For Kathy Keene’s Seat
Burien City Manager Mike Martin announced late Friday afternoon (Nov. 19) that city council members have narrowed to three the field of candidates to replace Councilwoman Kathy Keene, who will resign to retire in Florida effective Dec. 31.
Council members interviewed all five finalists at a special meeting on Nov. 15, then submitted their top three choices to Martin.
The final three are:
Duane Douglas Camerota, owner of Duane’s Garden Patch and past owner of Cugina’s Produce, and John C. Elliott, a quality systems project manager with Boeing, were the two other candidates.
Council members are expected to interview Duff, Reay and Robison again, perhaps before the Nov. 22 council meeting. The B-Town Blog will report the date and time for these interviews Monday morning.
They have until the first meeting in January to select Keene’s replacement, when that person will be seated on the council.
