Sheriff Adam Fortney is under attack
for standing up for the Constitution.
While I'm Sheriff, we are not going to arrest people when they pray, go to church or express their views.
When 2,000 people gathered at the State Capitol, the governor responded, not with citations or arrests, but rather by saying that he "supports free speech" and "welcomed" the protestors.
I share the governor’s respectful and reserved approach.
Although I did not ask for this fight, I will not shrink from it.
I ask the people of Snohomish County join me -- as they did last November -- to protect a common sense approach to public safety that puts people, and their unalienable rights, first.
