Marr on state Liquor Board

OLYMPIA — Former state Sen. Chris Marr was appointed to the Washington State Liquor Control Board Thursday by Gov. Chris Gregoire.

Marr, who served one term in the Senate from Spokane's 6th District but lost his re-election on Nov. 2 to Republican Mike Baumgartner, replaces Linda Bremer on the three-member board that oversees the sale of alcohol and programs to prevent its misuse. The appointment starts Feb. 1, and must be confirmed by the state Senate.

Gregoire cited Marr's experience in the Legislature and in business, where he was managing partner of Foothills Auto Group before his election to the Senate.

“The public has indicated support for the revenue liquor sales generate for essential state and local services, improved convenience and most importantly — ensuring public safety is not compromised,” Marr said in the press release that announced the appointment.
