EVERETT — A Marysville city councilman who works in finance has announced he’s running for Snohomish County treasurer next year.

Rob Toyer is in his second term on the City Council. In his announcement Wednesday, Toyer emphasized the importance of managing the county’s finances for the people who live here.

“My background as a business owner and financial services professional is well-suited to ensure their best interests are at the forefront of every decision,” Toyer said.

County Councilman Brian Sullivan also is leaning toward running for treasurer in 2019.

“I feel good about potentially announcing in January,” Sullivan said.

The current treasurer, Kirke Sievers, will reach the end of his third term next year and is barred by term limits from seeking re-election.

The county treasurer is responsible for collecting property taxes and investing certain county funds.

The job is nonpartisan. It will pay $136,356 next year.

In Marysville city government, Toyer has served on the council’s finance committee and as a Marysville Fire District commissioner. His City Council post is nonpartisan, though he’s been active in local Republican politics. Toyer said he is opting to run for treasurer rather than seeking re-election to the City Council.

Toyer, 37, served in the Marine Corps Reserves from 2001 to 2007. He was deployed overseas for Operation Iraqi Freedom.

He started his company, Toyer Wealth Management, in 2010.

The official filing period for the 2019 general election is in May. Sullivan’s council seat has attracted strong interest, as the Democrat is term limited. Two candidates have announced campaigns to replace him and several more are expected.

Other county officials facing term limits next year are Auditor Carolyn Weikel and Clerk Sonya Kraski.
