Keightley Enters the Race for Sheriff

Ellensburg Police captain Jim Keightley announced today that he is running for Yakima County Sheriff.  The 54 year old, who prior to his work in Ellensburg, spent 25 years
with the Washington State Patrol.  He thinks it’s time for outside leadership in an office that he believes  has mishandled major investigations. He says  he’s been disappointed to watch what can be described  as an absence of direction and  leadership within our
sheriffs office. “I don’t see anyone who has jumped into the race so far with the strength and progressive leadership style that we need.  We definately need a fresh perspective to create a culture of professional excellence in our Sheriff’s Office.”

Keightley, who lives in Yakima  joins Tieton Police Chief Jeff Ketchum,  Sherrifs Lt. Brian Winter and Yakima County Sheriff Deputy Steve Changala in the race to succeed Sheriff Ken Irwin, who is not running for re-election.
