Habib endorsed by Bellevue City Council


State Rep. Cyrus Habib has been endorsed by all seven members of the Bellevue City Council for his campaign for state Senate in the 48th Legislative District.

Habib grew up in Bellevue, the son of immigrants, and graduated from Bellevue public schools. At age eight he lost his sight to a rare form of childhood cancer, but went on to become a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford and a Yale Law School graduate, before returning to the Eastside to launch a legal career.

In 2012, Habib earned over 61 percent of the vote in his campaign for the state House and has since been named one of 12 legislators to watch this year nationwide by Governing Magazine, and one of the Washington Post's top 40 elected officials under 40-years-old.
