Another Washingtonian goes to the other Washington

Former Washington state governor turned current commerce secretary Gary Locke isn’t the only mover and shaker from our fine state to get noticed by US President Barack Obama: Rajiv Shah, a director at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and a member of the Seattle Community Colleges Board of Trustees has been nominated by Mr. Obama to be the undersecretary of the US Department of Agriculture.

As reported in the PSBJ, Shah’s relevant experience includes managing agricultural development programs for the Gates Foundation. Besides serving on the community colleges board, he’s also a member of the board for the Seattle Public Library.
