Re-Elect Adam Fortney for Sheriff, the best person that will keep us and our kids safe for the next four years!
The soft-on-crime establishment wants Snohomish County voters to bend-the-knee to Olympia bureaucrats and their failed law enforcement policies. Do you want to have a Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office protecting victims and doing policing or an administration on the side of criminals?
Gone are the days of catch-and-release under the former Sheriff Ty Trenary and Susanna Johnson Administration where she served as his Bureau Chief of Operations. Adam fulfilled his promise to end this disastrous Seattle-like policy. During COVID, facing immense pressure from Olympia, Adam kept the jail open to keep residents safe.
Seattle is now paying the price with the blood of innocent victims for failed policies Susanna supports. These same policies resulted in minimum staffing levels down 50% for Seattle PD. Could you image Snohomish County with 50% less deputies especially with the threat of organized crime and rise in gang-related shootings?
Has Ty ever shown up to his office as Senior Policy Analyst within the last four years after he was hooked up with the county job just months after losing to Adam? Has Ty ever submitted any reports as Senior Policy Analyst for the County to help with the county’s deadly fentanyl crisis or testified to the to the County Council within the last four years? No. Talk about using taxpayer’s money for a politically cushy job with no accountability.
The good ole “political” players club, with Susanna as their new face, opens an opportunity for a return of the failed policies of the Ty-Susanna Administration.
Why is it that ALL police officer guilds in ALL of Snohomish County support Adam? Because his proven policies in the last four years are the policing balance we need in Snohomish County.
Why would Susanna accept endorsements from vocal defund the police and anti-police groups and elected officials? They put Snohomish County at risk at a time we need good policing most.
During the “Summer of Love” riots throughout Puget Sound in 2020, rioters didn’t dare release their mayhem on Snohomish County. Fortney stands up to criminals and refuses to bend-the-knee. They knew this then and they know this now.
Snohomish County voters, we are at the crossroads for safety in our county. Re-Elect Adam Fortney for Sheriff, the best person that will keep us and our kids safe for the next four years!
