The statewide trade association for the commercial construction industry has named state Rep. Judy Clibborn as Legislator of the Year.

Clibborn, a four-term Democrat and former Mercer Island mayor, represents Talus, southwest Issaquah and Cougar Mountain communities as part of the 41st Legislative District.

Gene Colin, government affairs council chairman for Associated General Contractors, said Clibborn “gets it.”

“She understands that an efficient and adequate transportation system is good for the economy and the environment,” Colin said in a news release.

Clibborn is the chairwoman of the powerful House Transportation Committee. The trade association lauded Clibborn for helping to block legislation for added requirements to use subcontractors. The association described the measure as ill conceived and costly.

“Her contribution and support of our goals goes way beyond transportation,” Rick Slunaker, government affairs director for the group, said in the release. “Rep. Clibborn understands the importance of and has helped lead efforts to reform workers’ compensation laws and to save taxpayer dollars by opposing unworkable public contracting requirements.”

Clibborn, elected unopposed in 2008, is set to face Stephen Strader, a Bellevue Republican, or independent candidate Orion S. Webster in the Nov. 2 election. Voters will pick the top two candidates in the Tuesday primary.
