Former Mayor John Powers lands at top Kitsap economic development post

Former Spokane Mayor John Powers has landed a new West Side job.

Powers, who left Spokane and became CEO of Seattle’s Economic Development Council of Seattle and King County, will become executive director of the Kitsap Economic Development Alliance. He replaces Bill Stewart, who has announced his retirement after 3 1/2 years at the helm.

He was mayor from 2001 to 2003.

He stayed at the King County post for three years. Powers then joined Colliers International, an international commercial real estate brokerage.

A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Powers is 59. Before being elected mayor, Powers worked for many years with Spokane law firm Paine Hamblen.
