Susanna Johnson, candidate for Snohomish County Sheriff, declared victory over incumbent Adam Fortney after Tuesday’s election results were updated Thursday afternoon.

In a statement posted to Facebook Thursday, Johnson said:

One year ago, almost to the day, I announced my campaign to restore professionalism, respect, and integrity to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. After over thirty years in law enforcement this was a new adventure, but throughout I was moved by the outpouring of support from public safety leaders, elected officials, Tribes, essential workers, volunteers, donors, and more.
