Richard G. Cowell IV

March 14, 2022

My name is Richard Cowell, and I am announcing my candidacy for the Office of Boundary County Coroner. Currently, my wife and I live in Moyie Springs, but I have called Boundary County my home for the last 15 years. In 2014, I joined the Bonner's Ferry Police Department’s Explorer Post, getting to know and work with local law enforcement. In 2018 I was hired on with Boundary County Sheriff’s Office as a Detention Deputy before going to work for Bonner County Juvenile Detention.

In 2021 I was sworn in as a Reserve Officer with the Bonner's Ferry Police Department, a position I am honored to hold.

As the current Coroner is not seeking reelection, I have decided to seek the office as a Republican candidate. I believe this county needs someone who has lived here and truly appreciates the beauty of its people and the rural environment. I am an avid outdoorsman and have a deep appreciation for our environment. More importantly, I have a deep commitment to family and am fortunate to have siblings, my parents and grandparents living and working here in Boundary County.

The position of County Coroner will allow me to extend my love of family to my community, where I will be active in investigations, safety events in our schools, and other duties subject to the office.

Boundary County needs a Coroner who knows the people and can be compassionate, unbiased and thorough. As Coroner I promise to be fair and transparent in a time that is often very stressful to families.

Boundary County residents deserve someone they trust, someone who is honest, fair, and compassionate. I promise to be all those things. This May, voters will have an important decision to make. I ask that you please consider voting for Richard G. Cowell IV.
