Sound Transit seeks volunteers for oversight panel


Sound Transit is seeking Eastside volunteers for its Citizen Oversight Panel. The 15-member group independently monitors Sound Transit to make sure it meets its commitments to build and operate a regional bus, light rail and commuter rail transit system.

The group meets twice monthly during normal business hours with the task of digging into agency details, asking hard questions and reporting its findings to the Sound Transit Board of Directors.

Those interested must be a registered voter within the Sound Transit District and reside and/or work in East King County. They should have skills in one or more areas related to the panel's responsibilities: business and finance management; engineering; large projects construction management; public facilities and services; government processes; and public policy development or review.

More information is available via email at or by writing Sound Transit, 401 S. Jackson St., Seattle, WA 98104

A completed application and resume must be sent to Pat McCarthy, Sound Transit Board Chair, 401 South Jackson Street, Seattle, WA 98104-2826 by March 6.
