Kirkpatrick could find new role in King County

Former Spokane Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick is back in the news.

Kirkpatrick, who turned in her badge last year after voters ousted Mayor Mary Verner, has caught the attention of King County sheriff's candidate John Urqhart, who says he would hire her to serve as his chief deputy if voters elect to the post next month.

Urqhart spent 24 years with the King County Sheriff's Office in various roles and is challenging Sheriff Steve Strachan, who was appointed to the post by the King County Council in April.

Here's a link to the article about Urqhart's announcement that SR reporter Nicole Hensley put together today.
