Mara Gottfried of the Pioneer Press has a nice blog note saying that former St. Paul Police Chief Bill Finney will not reprise his candidacy for Ramsey County sheriff.
Finney lost a no-holds-barred battle in 2006 to incumbent Sheriff Bob Fletcher.
But Gottfried notes the speculation that Assistant St. Paul Police Chief Matt Bostrom might make a run for the sheriff’s job.
“The encouragement for me to enter the race has only increased,” Bostrom told my colleague, Dave Orrick, today. “And I have not ruled it out.”
