Deanna Walter, Chelan County Assessor, looks at emails in her office Friday afternoon. Walter will have a new office April 1 once she becomes the permanent director for the community development department.

WENATCHEE — Deanna Walter’s time in the position wasn’t supposed to be permanent. She had been appointed interim director twice before, but this time was different.

“I’m part of a family and another department needed help, so I’m going to go help,” said Walter, Chelan County Assessor, amidst tears Wednesday in her soon-to-be former office.
