Longtime Boeing Lobbyist to Step Down
Al Ralston, one of the most familiar figures in Olympia and a lobbyist for the Boeing Company for more than 20 years will step down later this summer to become president of the Washington Research Council. Ralston replaces longtime president Dick Davis who left his post last year to take a position with the Association for Washington Business. The Washington Research Council was founded in 1954 and is a non-partisan, free-market oriented organization that examines how public policy issues affect business, government and the community.
