Issaquah Sen. Mullet injured in ski accident

Fifth Legislative District Sen. Mark Mullet (D-Issaquah) is recovering after being involved in a recent ski accident, his office has confirmed.

Mullet’s communications specialist Jon Fowler stated on Thursday that Mullet is “doing fine” after being in “a minor ski accident.”

According to Fowler, the unfortunate skiing incident “exposed a surgery that [Mullet] needed to have.”

After receiving the diagnosis, Mullet went in right away to have the operation performed. He is now recovering and “doing well,” Fowler said.

Mullet was re-elected to the Senate for a second term in November, beating out former 5th District Rep. Chad Magendanz (R-Issaquah) for the 5th District Senate seat.

The senator is not only kept busy by his legislative duties; he also owns Issaquah businesses Zeek’s Pizza and Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, as well as the Bellevue Ben and Jerry’s.

The 5th District encompasses Issaquah, Snoqualmie, North Bend, Black Diamond, Maple Valley, Carnation and areas of Enumclaw and Renton.
