King County Elections Director Sherril Huff honored as Public Administration Practitioner of the Year
King County Elections Director Sherril Huff was honored on Tuesday by the Evergreen Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) as the Public Administration Practitioner of the Year.
“It is an honor to have been considered for this distinction. The core values that ASPA uses for distinguishing excellence are the ideals that I strive for as a public servant,” said Huff. “I am delighted to have received this award.”
Huff’s extensive public service and elections administration experience spans more than 30 years, with several different agencies. Most recently, she was overwhelmingly elected as the first elected elections director, in February 2009.
“Ms. Huff’s career as an innovative administrator along with her commitment to integrity and the respect she has earned from her peers, colleagues and the general public exemplifies the ideals of our society,” said J. Paul Blake, Evergreen Chapter President, ASPA.
Sponsored by the Evergreen Chapter of the ASPA, the event recognized the leaders among our state’s public administration educators and practitioners.
Founded in 1939, ASPA seeks to advance excellence in public service through programs and services that foster core public service values including accountability and performance, professionalism, social equity and ethics at the local, national and international levels.
