Gary Locke's seven-figure income will disappear if he becomes Commerce Department secretary

Former Gov. Gary Locke will take a pay cut should he become President Obama's Commerce secretary. Locke earned $533,000 in salary from the Seattle law firm Davis Wright Tremaine from January 2008 to the present and a state pension of about $121,000. He also received $101,000 in director's fees from Seattle-based Safeco Insurance Co., $467,000 from deferred Safeco fees and a stock cash-out, $15,000 in director's fees from Key Technology Inc. in Walla Walla and $19,250 from consulting work for Waggener Edstrom, a Bellevue public-relations firm.

WASHINGTON — Former Gov. Gary Locke will take a pay cut should he become President Obama's Commerce secretary.

Locke earned $533,000 in salary from the Seattle law firm Davis Wright Tremaine from January 2008 to the present and a state pension of about $121,000.

He also received $101,000 in director fees from Seattle-based Safeco Insurance, $467,000 from deferred Safeco fees and a stock cash-out, $15,000 in director fees from Key Technology in Walla Walla and $19,250 from consulting work for Waggener Edstrom, a Bellevue public-relations firm.

Cabinet secretaries earn $196,700 a year.

The Senate Commerce Committee on Thursday unanimously approved Locke's nomination. Next, he must win the approval of the full Senate.

Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., said he wants Locke on the job as soon as possible.

"The American people deserve to know that the person working with Congress and this committee every day, to determine the best way to reboot this economy, is a person who — simply put — gets it," Rockefeller said.

Senate leaders hope to schedule a confirmation vote quickly.

Locke listed bank accounts and other assets worth about $1.5 million to $5.4 million in his personal-financial disclosure report. Cabinet nominees are allowed to give assets' values in broad ranges rather than specific figures.

His major holdings include $100,000 to $250,000 in stock in Microsoft, one of Locke's legal clients. He holds $50,000 to $100,000 each in the Costco Wholesale Group and Esterline Technologies, and $15,000 to $50,000 in Starbucks.

Most of Locke's investments are in the $1,000-to-$15,000 range. Those include stock in dozens of well-known companies such as Apple, Amazon.com, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Chevron, General Electric, Google, Kraft Foods, Mattel and AT&T.

Locke serves on the board of Chinese-based telecommunications software company mInfo and has $50,000 to $100,000 in stock. Should the Senate confirm him as commerce secretary, as expected, Locke will exercise his vested mInfo stock options and divest the stock, and forfeit any unvested stock options.

Locke plans to keep his account in Davis Wright Tremaine's retirement plan but neither he nor the firm would contribute more to it.

Locke has served as an adviser to several companies, including Blue Marble Energy, General Biodiesel and technology company Eden Rock, all in Washington state, and Q Tires, based in Greenville, S.C.

If he becomes commerce secretary, he will divest his vested stock in Eden Rock and forfeit unvested stock, keep his stock options in Blue Marble Energy and exercise vested stock options in General Biodiesel and then divest them. He also will exercise vested stock options in Q Tires, his financial-disclosure report says.

Locke became Obama's third pick for commerce secretary after two previous nominees withdrew.

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson withdrew amid an inquiry into the awarding of state contracts, and Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., changed his mind about working for the Democratic president.

The Commerce Department has a broad array of responsibilities, including the 2010 census, many aspects of international trade, oceans policy, weather forecasts, the nation's transition to digital television and expanding rural broadband Internet service.
