The Seattle Times reports this morning that John D. Spellman, Washington’s last Republican governor and the first King County executive, has died at age 91. Spellman died early Tuesday at Virginia Mason Medical Center after contracting pneumonia. Spellman served one term as governor. He is pictured here in the early Eighties with the late Jim Rice, mayor at the time a group came together to re-establish a plywood mill cooperative (Publishers) on the Anacortes waterfront. (Note: camera angle makes it appear Rice is seated behind a name marker reading “Frank Moe.” Moe was seated next to Rice.)
