Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Chairman of CHECC beginning in mid 1972. Seattle City Council member (1974-1981), and King County Executive (1981-1985). He received national attention after the Seattle Post Intelligencer revealed that he suffered from bipolar disorder. He later served as senior vice president of the Washington State Hospital Association (WSHA). Revelle led the Washington Coalition for Insurance Parity with WSHA, successfully advocating for Washington State's mental health parity law in 2005. In 2007, the legislature expanded the law. He retired from WSHA in 2012 and died on June 3, 2018.
