OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Gov. Jay Inslee has picked a school board president to fill a House seat left by the late Rep. Roger Freeman of Federal Way.

Democrat Carol Gregory will represent the 30th District, which straddles King and Pierce County. She’ll serve until November, when she’ll have to run for election to keep her seat.

Freeman died of cancer less than a week before winning re-election in November.

The governor on Thursday picked a replacement from a list of nominees after King and Pierce county councils failed to agree on a choice within 60 days.

Gregory recently served as Federal Way school board president.
