Jefferson: Unexpected candidate files for sheriff race

One unexpected candidate for sheriff and two new candidates for county commissioner round out the field for elected office in Jefferson County this fall.

Glen Kilmer of Port Townsend, a former deputy with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, threw his hat into the ring Friday for sheriff during the last day of election filing.

Kilmer, 49, who is running as a Democrat, worked at the sheriff’s office from 1992 to 1999. He also worked for the Forks and Neah Bay police departments.

Kilmer was the only surprise candidate this week. All other candidates were either incumbents or announced their intention to run prior to the weeklong filing period.

Two more candidates filed for District 3 county commissioner Friday, making for a total of six people who are vying for the position.

Republican Pat Rodgers of Brinnon filed, as did Barbara Brace of Brinnon.
