From a press release:

The Metropolitan King County Council today gave its unanimous support to the reappointment of Jim Wigfall to the King County Library System (KCLS) Board.

Wigfall was nominated to the board by Council Vice Chair Reagan Dunn, and has served the board since his first appointment in 2009.

“I look forward to seeing how Jim’s experience on the board and his dedication to the goals of the KCLS will continue to enhance the library system in his next term,” Dunn, who represents the city of Newcastle, where Wigfall lives, on the County Council, said in a press release.

“I appreciate Councilmember Dunn and the entire King County Council for this reappointment,” said Wigfall. “I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues to further the mission of the King County Library System, which is to provide free, open, and equal access to ideas and information to all members of King County.”

Wigfall comes to the board with experience and insight from his previous term. He works as the vice president of supplier management for Boeing’s Shared Services Group. He is an active community member, participating in the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, King County Library Systems Foundation, and Special Olympics Washington. In

In his free time, Wigfall enjoys writing fiction, a passion that makes his work on the KCLS Board even more meaningful. He is also an avid sports fan, and plays flag football, softball, baseball, golf, tennis, and takes time for both snow and water skiing.

The mission of the King County Library System is to provide free, open, and equal access to ideas and information to all members of the community. For over 70 years King County Libraries have provided communities with resources and a wealth of knowledge.
