McNamara Doyle named PDC exec director

OLYMPIA — Andrea McNamara Doyle, an attorney who has held posts on several environmental boards for the state, was named executive director of the Public Disclosure Commission Thursday.

McNamara Doyle will succeed Doug Ellis, who has been interim director since March 2010, when Vicki Rippie retired. She has worked for state agencies and legislative committees, was a member of the Davis Wright Tremaine law firm in Seattle and served as a member of the Pollution Control Hearings Board, The Shorelines Hearings Board and the Land Use Hearings Board.

As the head of the PDC's staff of 20, the agency's spokesperson and the liaison between the agency and the governor and Legislature, she'll earn a salary of $113,000.

The other finalist for the position was Alan Rathbun, the licensing and regulation director for the state Liquor Control Board.
