It is important to me that we always keep in mind our Mission. The proud members of the Sheriff's Office are here to serve and protect, especially the most vulnerable of us. Please vote. The Sheriff's election is one of the most important we have had in King County in years and sitting on the sidelines could have disastrous results. I will be honored to serve as your Sheriff and I appreciate each and every vote.  Thank you, Mitzi

Mitzi is running for Sheriff because it is time to focus on the business of public safety in King County.  The women and men of the Sheriff’s Office and the communities they protect deserve a Sheriff who makes fighting crime and community building her first priorities.  Mitzi is an experienced law enforcement leader with a track record of success.

Born and raised in King County, Mitzi has served her community for 32 years.  She is an experienced, progressive law enforcement leader, having risen to the rank of Major.  Mitzi was the first woman to command TAC-30, the King County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team, and has served in leadership roles in every division and location in the Sheriff’s Office.  As a deputy, she was the first to work with a multi-disciplinary team in King County housing projects.  She collaborated with other agencies, community groups and residents to build relationships and trust, promoting public safety.

Mitzi and her wife, Maureen, live in West Seattle.  She volunteers on the board of Companis, a local non-profit, and does production work for the Seattle Men’s and Women’s Choruses.  Their adult daughter, Sydni, lives in New York City.
