Scott sworn in as Sheriff

Rick Scott is sworn in by Chief Civil Deputy Judy Mawhorter as the new sheriff for Grays Harbor County in the commission chambers in Montesano on Tuesday. The room was filled with friends, family and high ranking law enforcement officers from communities across the county and as far away as Seattle. “It will be an honor to lead what I consider to be one of the finest law enforcement agencies in the state,” said Scott. Scott succeeds Mike Whelan, who retired on Oct. 1.
