Although it’s six months down the road, King County Sheriff John Urquhart is getting ready for the November election.
He’s set to kick off his re-election campaign at a meet and greet Wednesday evening at the House of Hong in the Chinatown-International District.
He has lined up some big guns for his election roll out including King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg, Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes, and former U. S. Attorney John McKay.
Urquhart became sheriff in a special election last year to fill the final year of Sheriff Sue Rahr’s term. Rahr left to become director of the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission.
