John Lovick to run for State Representative in 2016
SNOHOMISH COUNTY – Former Snohomish County Executive, John Lovick, (D-Snohomish County) announced today he is launching his campaign for the Washington State House of Representatives in Snohomish County’s 44th Legislative District. Lovick will be running for the seat being vacated by Hans Dunshee who will be running for Snohomish County Council.
John Lovick has spent 46 years in public service. His extensive experience includes service in the United States Coast Guard, the Washington State Patrol, Mill Creek City Council, Washington State Legislature, Snohomish County Sheriff, and County Executive. John has also been active in many community activities including serving as a youth sports coach, youth mentor, and donating thousands of his famous deep fried turkeys for charitable causes.
“I am passionate about serving our community. Returning to the State Legislature to represent people in the 44th District is an immense honor. There is much to do, and I have the leadership skills, energy, and experience to hit the ground running in Olympia,” said Lovick.
In the Legislature, Lovick passed many laws that address some of our most pressing needs including legislation to crack down on child sex offenders, improve safety in our schools, and address traffic congestion on our roads and highways. His leadership skills and ability to work with members of both parties resulted in the honor of being elected by his colleagues to the position of Speaker of the House Pro-Tempore.
“I live in this community and see the impact every day that our growing economy is having on our local infrastructure. This leads to more homes being constructed in our community, more students in our schools, and increased traffic on our roads. We need strong leadership that can work with members of both parties in Olympia to solve the issues confronting us.”
Lovick said, “Simply throwing money at these issues won’t solve the problem. We need to bring innovation, common sense, fresh ideas, and a bipartisan approach to problem solving to address our communities most pressing problems.”
John Lovick’s history of distinguished service is reflected in his family’s values. John is often seen at community events and school functions with his oldest grandson who is a local high school student. His wife, Karen is a retired fifth grade teacher. They have raised five children and all of them have continued the legacy of their parents by serving in law enforcement, teaching and public service. They have five grandchildren.
Lovick, is excited to bring his message to the people. He encourages voters to visit his website at to learn more about his experience and position on the issues. Supporters are encouraged to endorse, contribute, and find out about upcoming events.
