Withdrawn candidate re-enters race for Jefferson County Sheriff

Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — A candidate who withdrew from the Jefferson County Sheriff's race because he did not receive his party's endorsement is back in the competition.

“Due to lots of community input given to me, I have reactivated my campaign,” Dave Stanko said today.

Stanko, 66, suspended his campaign after members of the county Democratic Party voted June 10 to endorse fellow Democrat Wendy Davis, 47, for the position.

Despite his withdrawal, Stanko's name remains on the Aug. 5 primary ballot.

Also on the ballot for the sheriff's race is Ken Przygocki, 63, a retired State Patrol officer who filed with no party affiliation.

One candidate will be eliminated in the primary and move on to the Nov. 4 general election.

Stanko said his website, www.davestankoforsheriff.com, will be active later today.
