Published:
ISLAND COUNTY -- Dave Hayes, a sergeant in the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department and president of a statewide law enforcement organization, has launched a campaign to succeed state Rep. Barbara Bailey, R-Oak Harbor.
Hayes, a Republican, is the first GOP candidate to announce since Bailey said last week she will pass on re-election in order to challenge Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, D-Camano Island.
"Upon learning of the vacancy and with the support of various local community members and leaders I have decided to file as a candidate for election to the position of state representative," Hayes said in a prepared statement. "I have over 17 years of experience as a community servant as a law enforcement officer, I would like to take my sense of service to the next level by serving the citizens of the 10th Legislative District in Olympia."
Hayes, a Camano Island resident, said he is a sergeant with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Department and is in charge of facilities security.
He also is president of the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs and is a former leader of the Snohomish County Deputy Sheriff's Association and Marysville Police Guild.
He's not set up a campaign website yet. But he can be found on Facebook at Elect Dave Hayes.
Tom Riggs, a Democratic candidate who lost to Bailey in 2010, has said he will run again for the seat. Riggs, a state park ranger, was defeated by a margin of 58 percent to 42 percent.
