John Urquhart for Sheriff

SnoValley Star Editorial Board, October 24, 2012

The sheriff’s office is mired in problems with personnel, policies and procedures — all brought to light in recent audits. The next sheriff has a paramount duty to correct the issues and restore public confidence in the agency.

Neither candidate is ideal, but both interim Sheriff Steve Strachan and John Urquhart offer a deep respect for the agency and its mission to protect and serve.

We support Urquhart, whose strength is in his skill to communicate the agency’s mission and priorities to elected leaders in King County and Olympia, deputies in the field and, most importantly, to the public.
