Commissioner Sherman represents you as your Tulalip Bay Fire Department/Snohomish County Fire District 15 Commissioner in position #3.

I grew up in Marysville and Tulalip WA. I am a Marysville Pilchuck H.S. graduate. I started my fire service journey in 1993 at TBFD/SCFD 15. Since then, I have volunteered/part time as a firefighter for three counties and one city fire departments. I am currently working full time for South Snohomish County Fire and Rescue Regional Fire Authority “South County Fire”, where I’ve been employed since 2006 as a FF/EMT. In addition to years in the fire service, I spent a decade in law enforcement. I have volunteered/worked for the City of Cashmere WA as an assistant to Mayor Jeff Gomes. Years later, I was appointed by the city council to the position of City Council position #5. I worked as Assistant Chief in 2016 at TBFD until the position was no longer needed. In closing, I thank you for allowing me to serve you and our community as your Commissioner.
