Randy Revelle (April 26, 1941)[1] was the third King County Executive, having served from his election in November 1981 until January 1, 1986.[2] Revelle received some national attention when shortly after his election the Seattle Post Intelligencer disclosed that Revelle suffered from bipolar disorder. Revelle made no secret of his condition[3] and, he said later, “friends, colleagues and the media” knew about it.

Later, he served as senior vice president of the Washington State Hospital Association, where he pushed for a mental health law in 2007.
