AGO Opinions with Topic: POLITICAL ACTIVITIES OF DEPUTY SHERIFFS
AGLO 1978 No. 20 >  June 22, 1978
OFFICES AND OFFICERS - COUNTY - SHERIFF - POLITICAL ACTIVITIES OF DEPUTY SHERIFFS
OFFICES AND OFFICERS ‑- COUNTY ‑- SHERIFF ‑- POLITICAL ACTIVITIES OF DEPUTY SHERIFFS Neither the fact that RCW 41.14.190 is a special statute relating only to deputy county sheriffs and related personnel nor the further fact that this law was originally adopted as part of an initiative to the people is sufficient to cause the statute (prohibiting political activities by deputy sheriffs) to remain fully enforceable and unaffected by the later enactment of § 1, chapter 136, Laws of 1974, 1st Ex.Sess., whereby the legislature granted the right to participate in designated political activities to all state and local governmental employees.
