PORT ORCHARD — Dolores Gilmore announced Jan. 30 that she will not seek re-election as Kitsap County auditor in November.

The 34-year veteran of Kitsap County government said she is looking forward to joining her husband in retirement and spending more time with the couple’s grandchildren.

“I have been honored to serve as the county auditor since January 2015,” Gilmore said in an announcement of her retirement. “It has been very rewarding to provide essential services to so many people in Kitsap County and I will enjoy completing this last year of my term in office.”

Gilmore served in a number of positions within the county auditor’s office. She served as manager of the Recording Division and then as Elections manager, and was elected auditor in 2014.

“I am looking forward to the next phase of my life and will miss working with so many people who are as dedicated to serving the public as I have been for the last 34 years,” she said.

Candidate filing for the 2018 election begins May 14. Gilmore’s successor will be sworn into office in January 2019.

The assessor is elected for a four-year term and receives an annual salary of $112,216 and benefits.
