Former state senator Mary Margaret Haugen of Camano Island is joining the state board which oversees distribution of millions of dollars in loans for public works projects in Washington.

Gov. Jay Inslee on Wednesday appointed Haugen and Lisa Wellman to the 13-member Public Works Board. Members serve four-year terms and receive no compensation but can be reimbursed for travel expenses.

The board provides low-interest loans to cities, counties, tribes and special districts for construction of sewer and water systems and other public infrastructure.

Haugen, a Democrat, spent 30 years in the Legislature and served in both the House and Senate. Sen. Barbara Bailey, R-Oak Harbor, unseated Haugen in the 2012 election.
