EVERETT – John Lovick will be Snohomish County’s next sheriff.

His opponent, sheriff's Chief Tom Greene, conceded the race for after the latest batch of ballots was tallied. Lovick slightly added to his lead with the addition of 1,102 ballots. He leads Greene by 3,611 votes.

“I feel so honored the majority of voters placed their confidence in me,” Lovick said after learning of the latest vote totals.
A final count isn’t expected until Thursday but Greene said he decided he couldn’t overcome the margin that separates him from Lovick.
“I believe in miracles but it’s unlikely it will happen,” Greene said. “I have called John and conceded.”
Lovick has led Greene since Election Day last week. Lovick dominated in the cities with the largest population of registered voters and swept south Snohomish County.
Lovick, 56, is expected to become the county’s first new sheriff in a dozen years. He will have to step down from his position as a state Representative to take the job. Lovick is a retired Washington State Patrol sergeant and lives in Mill Creek.
He plans to continue to get acquainted with the deputies and begin to put together his command staff, including his undersheriff.
