Washington Public Library Trustee Wiki

An informal AGO Opinion issued 3/7/1991, signed by Assistant Attorney General Carole A. Ressler and addressed to Martin Muench, states:

“You have asked whether, under RCW 27.12.190, a Library Trustee who is appointed to complete another Trustee's term can then serve two consecutive full terms… The Trustee who fills an unexpired term is not serving ‘a term’ as defined in the statute. Under this analysis, a Trustee can serve two terms in addition to completing another's unexpired term… Filling a vacancy is different from ‘regular’ appointments made by the appointing authority. That distinction provides additional support for interpreting the limitation to apply to ‘regular’ appointments: two consecutive full terms as defined in the statute.”
