The Associated PressJanuary 7, 2014 

— Gov. Jay Inslee has appointed a new executive director to lead the Puget Sound Partnership, the state agency tasked with cleaning up Puget Sound.

Inslee on Tuesday announced the appointment of Sheida Sahandy.

She has worked for the city of Bellevue since 2006, where she worked as assistant to the city manager.

She'll take over an agency with 47 employees and an annual budget of $9.4 million in state and federal money. She begins her job Feb. 4.

Sahandy would be the fifth executive director of the partnership since it was created by the Legislature in 2007.

She'll take over the post from Marc Daily, who was appointed interim executive director last year.
