Councilmember Sally Bagshaw was first elected to the City Council in 2009 after serving eight years as Chief Civil Deputy Prosecutor of the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office under Norm Maleng. During her tenure, Sally led a staff of over 60 lawyers that advised Executive Ron Sims, Sheriff Sue Rahr, King County Council members, Metro Transit, Harborview Medical Center and the other agencies of the nation's 13th largest county; a multi-faceted governing body with an annual budget of $4.9 billion.

Sally began her legal career as an Assistant Attorney General after graduating from Stanford University and the University of Idaho Law School. As Chief of the Civil Division for the County she represented the Transportation, Natural Resources, and Real Property divisions from 1999 to 2007, Natural Resources and Real Property divisions. Sally has also served as business and finance lawyer for both Washington State University and University of Washington.

In 1983, Sally was appointed the University of Washington's Minority and Women's Business Enterprise Officer and was selected by Gov. Booth Gardner to play a lead role in an initiative to include minority and women owned businesses in the state government's public contracts. Sally also helped to establish a legal clinic at the YWCA's Opportunity Place where other lawyers provide free legal advice to homeless women. In 2004, she was recognized for her efforts, receiving both the King County Bar Association's Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year award and the State Bar Association's annual award for lawyers in public service.

Sally raised two sons in Lake Forest Park, is a certified pilot, and is a proud first-time grandmother. She and her husband, Brad, live in downtown Seattle.
