Since we last checked in, several more people have officially jumped into the race to fill state Rep. David Frockt's (D-46) house seat. (Frockt was appointed to replace former state Sen. Scott White, who died suddenly last month.)

One of them, Sylvester Cann, who worked in White's senate office, is sending out a letter to the 46th District precinct committee officers tonight announcing that White's widow, Alison, is supporting him.

Cann currently works for an education nonprofit, the Community Center for Education Results, that works with at-risk student in South King County.

Prior to working with White, Cann was in real estate. He had a 15-minute stage turn when he got President Obama to sign his iPad when Obama spoke at a Sen. Patty Murray campaign rally at the UW in October 2010.

To read about all the candidates, you can check out their questionnaires here. The 46th, in North Seattle, will hold a special caucus on December 1 for its precinct committee officers to choose three recommendations (with a top recommendation duly noted) which gets forwarded to the King County Council. The Council will then pick Frockt's replacement.
