Washington State's Steve Kolodney Vacates Post

Steve Kolodney, Washington state's chief information officer and the Year 2000 point man for the National Association of State Information Resource Executives, said he will leave his state post later this month.

In announcing Kolodney's departure, Washington Gov. Gary Locke said Kolodney had decided to pursue a private-sector career in Sacramento, Calif., where his family resides.

Locke praised Kolodney for his accomplishments in creating @ccess Washington (access.wa.gov), the state's World Wide Web presence. Locke also cited Kolodney's role in building K-20, the state's education network. In addition to his work in Washington state, Kolodney also has worked closely with the feds to help ensure that computer interfaces between federal and state programs were Year 2000-ready.
