Third Republican enters race for Pearson's seat

Robert Pilgrim, a detective with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office, has joined an increasingly crowded field competing to succeed Rep. Kirk Pearson, R-Monroe.

Pilgrim, an Arlington resident, is the third Republican and fourth candidate seeking the 39th Legislative District seat that Pearson is vacating in order to run for state Senate.

Last week, Republicans Robert Zimmerman and Elizabeth Scott, and Democrat Eleanor Walters, declared their candidacies. Zimmerman is mayor of Monroe while Scott and Walters each made an unsuccessful bid for state office in 2010.

Pilgrim, 46, said he's been in law enforcement for 15 years, the last five with the sheriff's office. He said he works as a financial crimes detective in north county.

This is his first bid for political office.

“I've been a law enforcer, not a lawmaker,” he said.
