Whatcom Sheriff

Rarely does a plumber get involved in politics (yeah rite), but this is important.

Whatcom County desperately needs a new sheriff and Deputy Harris fills the bill nicely. Not because he rides a motorcycle, belongs to the Freemasons (I'll be at the next meeting, I promise), has young children (a stake in the community), on and on and on.

Here is his bio via the Herald:

Name: Steve Harris
Age: 43
Family: wife Lillian; children Brittany, 22, Cole, 11, Emily, 6.
Education: high school graduate; attended junior college (no degree); hundreds of hours of job specific course work and continuing education credits.
Work experience: full-time deputy with Whatcom County Sheriff's Office since January 1998 with last eight years as detective; co-owner of a local business for almost two years; worked in the commercial refrigeration industry.
Civic experience: Scottish-Rite of Freemasonry, Valley of Bellingham executive board, February 2011-present; Scottish-Rite Scholarship Foundation of Washington, assistant director Bellingham, September 2010-present; Public Safety Employees Insurance, Inc. board, January 2010-present; Whatcom County Deputy Sheriff’s Guild president, November 2007-February 2011; Hannegan Speedway (MBMC, Inc.) president, 2009; Hannegan Speedway finance secretary, 2006-07; Whatcom County Deputy Sheriff’s Guild first vice president, 2007; American Motorcycle Association, Washington comp. manager, 2005-07.

Now do you see why I'm supporting Deputy Harris?

Phone Number Deleted

I killed 360-733-1292 because we got the 360-647-BALL (2255) number. Actually, 1292 woulda died a long time ago if it wasn't for the internet plastering it all over the place.

And, of course, we've been getting calls about the dead number....
