Councilmember Lovelett now senator

Published February 6, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

Former Anacortes City Councilmember Liz Lovelett has a new title this week after being named to the State Senate to replace former Sen. Kevin Ranker (D-San Juan Islands). Ranker was found to have sexually harassed a woman while she was his legislative assistant during the 2010 legislative session. He resigned last month. Lovelett, a Democrat, was selected Tuesday over former State Rep. Kris Lytton, also of Anacortes. This photo of Lovelett (right) was taken at a Chamber of Commerce candidates luncheon in 2017.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
