Kitsap County sheriff says he won’t seek re-election

Kitsap County Sheriff Steve Boyer announced today that he will not seek a fifth term as sheriff, citing recent health concerns.

Boyer, 63, served as sheriff for the past 15 years and in law enforcement for more than 42 years, according to a news release. After he developed health problems, professionals ruled out any serious issues, he said, but that prompted him to think about his potential re-election.

“While another term as sheriff would be possible, this has prompted me to reflect on the future and consider some new adventures,” he said. “Although this may slow me down a bit, I consider it yet another challenge.”

Boyer retired from the Washington State Patrol after 27 years of service before taking office as Kitsap County sheriff after the 1998 election. He intends to complete his current term of service, he said.

The sheriff election will be held this fall.
