Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney says he will run for office again in 2023.
“I’m absolutely running in 2023. I am so proud of what we have going on here at the sheriff’s office,” Fortney told the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH.
“It’s been a bumpy road, but it has for all of law enforcement in the last couple years with everything we’ve gone through,” he added.

Fortney was the subject of a failed recall effort last year that began after he questioned the constitutionality of Governor Inslee’s COVID-19 restrictions and stay-at-home order in 2020, and said he would not enforce it.
Ultimately, the recall effort against him failed in early 2021 because there were not enough signatures on the petition for a recall vote.
