Republican Dick Muri of Steilacoom will be sworn in as the newest member of the state House of Representatives  this evening in a public ceremony at Steilacoom City Hall, aides say. Muri fills the 28th Legislative District vacancy left by Steve O’Ban, who was appointed last month to replace the late Mike Carrell in the Senate.

Steve Maynard of the News Tribune has the full story this morning on the Pierce County Council’s decision to appoint Muri on Tuesday.

Muri, who is a retired Air Force officer and former Pierce County Council member, became known to Olympia-area voters last fall when he ran for the U.S. House in the new 10th Congressional District and lost to Democrat Denny Heck.

Democrats control the state House by a 55-to-43 margin while a Republican-dominated coalition controls the Senate.
