Interview: Doug Traubel, 1 of 6 Candidates for Ada County Sheriff

By • June 12, 2021

With the sudden retirement of Ada County Sheriff Stephen Bartlett, the Ada County Republican Party has been tasked with his replacement.

The Ada County Republican Party’s Precinct Committeemen will choose three of the six candidates and send those names to the Ada County Commissioners. The commissioners, two Republicans, and one Democrat have to choose one of the three names and appoint that person to fill the vacancy.

According to Ada County Republican Chairman Victor Miller, approximately four dozen Precinct Committeemen attended today’s event.

The candidate who is ultimately appointed will serve until 2023 but will face an election in 2022. The candidate chose from the top three would then have the opportunity to run on the ballot in 2024 for a full four-year term.

Doug Traubel is one of the six candidates and you can see the entirety of his interview in the video below:

  1. Excellent interviews of the first three men who are asking for my vote to become Ada County Sheriff.
    Based only on THIS information, I would vote for Doug Traubel.

    Great work Greg.

  2. Another good candidate! Mr. Traubel knows his Constitution and law enforcement. LOVED to hear he would not enforce ATF gun confiscation, his first loyalty is defending the rights of the people. Also good to hear him differentiate between protestor v rioter and he voiced the importance of having the backs of his officers, even when the optics may not look pretty. The kind of sheriff that’s needed in the age of BLM, Antifa, and the overreach of the federal government.
