I work with Brad on a daily basis. He has my full support for Stevens County Sheriff. Our county is bigger and more complicated than most people know and Brad is the right person to lead it into the future.

I’ve known Brad for many years and I know he is a very dedicated man. He has served our community in many ways, Colville Fire Dept (he was the chief), Stevens County Team Rescue, and many years protecting us on the Sheriffs dept. I’ve seen Brad in serious situations and in the company of friends. He’s got a great head on his shoulders and a wicked personality. I know what kind of man it takes to be the sheriff...I lived with one of the great ones for many years. It takes a man with excellent team work skills, dedication to the community, seriousness and humor (you HAVE to have that balance), patience and understanding from your family (he has a great family), and a great following of supporters such as myself!!! 😂Vote for Brad. 👍🏼

danielle Cote

Brad has always been a very intellectual and giving man. There has never been a time in my whole life that he has ever let me, his family, his friends, or his peers down. He always has and always will do what is best for the people around him! He has my complete support! 💙

DOUg Mcquain

What’s not to like about Brad and his background experience, not to mention his (d)emocratic spirit! This Democrat supports Brad Manke for Stevens County Sheriff.

Andy harbolt

I have served the great people of Stevens County for nearly 24 years! And as a volunteer with Colville PD prior to that for 5 years! Brad has been both my friend and co worker and I have had the opportunity to supervise and watch him flourish as a leader! Their is no one else that can take this office where it needs to go! He is realistic, educated and trained! His qualifications are real and not fluff! You can not lead from the rear! You lead from the front! Brad knows the
job and is the only candidate that can relate to us! Citizens of Stevens County! Educate yourselves on the qualifications and make up your own minds. You wont be disappointed with Brad Manke for Sheriff! I guarantee you!

ian hayes

He is the right man for the job, people do your research and make the right choice......Manke for Sheriff.

stephanie anderson

Vote for Brad!! He is a great man and will do a great job for Stevens County! 👍🏼

Merril ott

Brad, You have my support. Having seen first hand the operations of the sheriff's office for eight years as a county commissioner, I know the challenges you face. I believe you will accomplish these tasks with all due diligence and success. We're really happy with your decision to run, and really appreciate your willingness to serve. I've observed your progress over the years, and you are the best qualified to be our sheriff!

I’ve been in law enforcement for 30 years working in two vastly different departments. I’ve worked with a lot of administration and street”cops” Brad has what it takes to get the job done! UNLIKE his opponent he’s worked almost every detail within the Sheriff’s department gathering hands on experience. UNLIKE his opponent he has a way of bringing the troops “together” not dividing them.
UNLIKE his opponent he’s hardworking and dedicated to his job. UNLIKE his opponent he has no hidden agenda. Serving Stevens county is his agenda .

beth manning

I have known Brad for many years. He cares about our county and our citizens. He is a stand up guy, has a vast knowledge of our county, and is dedicated to our community. He has years of experience in different areas of law enforcement in our county and I believe that is what makes the best candidate for Sheriff. Brad and his family have my full support.

Ashley Pratt

Excited and thankful for Brad's announcement to become an election choice for Stevens County Sheriff, proud to know him, proud to support him and excited for the future! You have our vote!
