A day after the Pierce County Council chose him to replace the late Mike Carrell as the 28th District’s state senator, Steve O’Ban has been sworn in to the Senate. O’Ban was elected a state representative for the district last November. The Senate will hold a legislative memorial service for Carrell June 10 on the Senate floor. Carrell died last week from complications related to treatment of a pre-cancerous condition.
