Updated:OLYMPIA, Washington —
Dino Rossi is back in the state senate after being appointed to fill a vacancy.
The Metropolitan King County Council picked him to fill the seat left behind by Sen. Cheryl Pflug, who left to take a job with the Washington Grown Management Hearings Board, KIRO 7 news partner The Olympian reported.
The seat, in Washington’s 5th District, was once Rossi’s; Pflug succeeded him in 2004.
Rossi will fill the position for four months until a new senator is elected in November.
He said he does not plan to seek the position permanently.
