Sheriff-elect tops off win by getting married
Nancy Ortwerth had hardly gotten over the high of being elected Pierce County Sheriff when she and her fiancé flew off to Jamaica and got married.
On Nov. 7, county voters chose the 40-year-old DARE officer over incumbent Sheriff Everett Muhlhausen by a vote of 7,832 to 6,108. On Nov. 25, she and Jason Hove were married.
"It's still hard to believe," she said of her election.
"I'm doing wonderful--I think," said Hove Friday, reacting to her whirlwind month.
