A West Seattleite in the mayor’s office after all

While the West Seattle-resident mayor and deputy mayor will soon be leaving City Hall, an announcement today means there’ll be at least one high-ranking West Seattleite in the office soon: Mark Matassa, a veteran journalist who most recently had worked as deputy editor for Crosscut, has just been announced as Mayor-elect Mike McGinn‘s communications director. Here’s a report from Seattle Weekly. 4:50 PM UPDATE: The appointment is now posted on the transition website at new.seattle.gov, along with some other McGinn staff announcements.
