Rep. John Lovick to Run For Sheriff

Seattle Times political reporter David Postman reports this morning in his blog that Rep. John Lovick (D-Mill Creek) has annouced that he will run this fall for Snohomish County Sheriff.  Lovick should be familiar to many observers of the state legislature since he has served as House Speaker Pro-Tem (presiding officer) for the last several sessions and is therefore a regular face on TVW.

Rumors that Lovick would run for the seat being vacated by the retiring Rick Bart had been rampant during the 2007 legislative session since Lovick is a retired State Patrol officer with more than 30 years in law enforcement.
