Pierce County, when we dial 911, we need our “Protect & Serve” system of law enforcement to work and work well.

Based on my 25-year association with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, I know Sheriff Lieutenant Cyndie Fajardo’s announcement is good news for us and the department.

Thank you Chief Fajardo for your willingness to serve as Sheriff of Pierce County. Yes, I know you currently hold the rank of Lieutenant, but, I still think of you as Chief from when you were Chief of Police for the Town of Steilacoom. I also realize it is not such a giant leap to move from Chief to Sheriff. You have experience leading a law enforcement organization.

You have our vote, “Sheriff” Fajardo. While you are not yet elected, I thought I would practice saying, Sheriff Fajardo. I like the sound of it. For anyone reading my comment her name is pronounced (faa har doe). Get to know her.

Joseph Boyle – My name is pronounced (Boil) and I am boiling over with excitement now that Lieutenant is running for Sheriff.

I worked with Cyndie on a joint rescue team called: “PSORT” Pierce County Special Operation Team.

Immediately identifiable as a leader in critical situations, she would provide guidance and motivation in a crisis and the long term.

Retired Fire Lieutenant

As a 20 year veteran of the Washington State House of Representatives representing the 31st Legislative District in Pierce County and a retired 25-year Detective and Commander in law enforcement, I have known and worked with Cyndie for many years and know that she is by far the most qualified candidate for Pierce County Sheriff. We need her experience and professionalism as our Pierce County Sheriff in these challenging times, and I hope you will join me in voting for her.

Retired State Representative
