OLYMPIA -- Gov.-elect Jay Inslee is tapping someone with public-education experience to serve as his chief of staff.
Inslee said Thursday he had chosen Mary Alice Heuschel to serve as his top adviser. She has been working as superintendent of the Renton School District.
Inslee touted her educational achievements and said her leadership and management style were attributes that would help him in the governor's office.
Education will be a top issue for Inslee as he enters the governor's office in January. Lawmakers are looking to add billions of dollars of new funding to the education system, and voters recently approved a system of charter schools.
