SPD detective files for run against Knezovich

Last week’s off-year election isn’t even certified yet, and now 2014 already is heating up.

Spokane police Detective Doug Orr is gearing up for a run against Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich.

Orr, who also serves as an adjunct criminal justice professor at Gonzaga University, has filed paperwork with the state Public Disclosure Commission declaring his intent to run for sheriff next year, which enables him to begin seeking campaign contributions.

Knezovich also has filed paperwork with the PDC indicating he’ll seek another term, and he’s already raised nearly $35,000 for the campaign.

He was first appointed to the post by Spokane County commissioners in 2006 when former Sheriff Mark Sterk stepped down.  Knezovich was elected to his first full term later that year following a bruising GOP primary clash with Sterk’s preferred successor, former Spokane Valley Police Chief Cal Walker. Knezovich was unopposed when he sought re-election in 2010.
