Murray Appoints Joncas Of Downtown Seattle Association As Deputy Mayor
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray has named Downtown Seattle Association President and CEO Kate Joncas as his new deputy mayor of operations.
“From transit and economic development to human services and the redevelopment of our central waterfront, she has been a well-respected, deeply involved and highly influential voice in this city. She brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the role, and she also brings history of delivering successful results," Murray said.
Joncas has worked at the Downtown Seattle Association since 1994. She replaces Andrea Riniker, who had been serving as interim deputy mayor.
"Downtown is just one of the many neighborhoods that will all be my favorites now," Joncas said.
