Ron Sims, Seattle attorney appointed WSU regents

Former King County executive Ron Sims and Seattle attorney Ryan Durkan have both been appointed to the Board of Regents at Washington State University by Gov. Chris Gregoire.

Sims served as deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development from Feb. 2009 until June 2011. He was King County executive from 1996 to 2009.

Durkan is an attorney with HCMP Law Offices in Seattle, where she specializes in real estate, land use and environmental law.  She graduated from Washington State University in 1978 and served on the Washington State University Foundation board of trustees.

The regents are the school’s governing board, and usually meet once a month to supervise, coordinate, manage and regulate the WSU system.
