Cyrus Habib named one of '12 State Legislators to watch in 2014'

State Rep. Cyrus Habib, who represents Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond and the Points Communities in the state House of Representatives, has been chosen by as one of “12 State Legislators to watch in 2014.”

Responding to the selection, Representative Habib said “I’m both honored and humbled to be part of’s list of legislators to watch. I look forward to continuing my work this year helping to make Washington the best state in the nation for businesses, workers, and families.”

Citing his educational credentials and his unique heritage (Habib is believed to be only state legislator in the country with an Iranian-American background), the vice-chair of the Technology and Economic Development Committee was listed as a legislator to watch for in the upcoming year in a list that includes six Democrats and six Republicans.

Habib grew up in Bellevue and attended public schools there.
