Commissioner Wolfe

Commissioner Edward Wolfe, representing Central Kitsap, joined the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners in November 2014.  Prior to his election, he was a well-known local attorney, founding Wolfe Law Offices in Kitsap 17 years ago. He is admitted to practice law in all Washington State Courts, the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington and Colorado, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th and 10th Circuit Courts. He is a past president of the Kitsap Bar Association and a former judge pro tem in county municipal and district courts.

Commissioner Wolfe, who was raised in Norfolk, Virginia, is a graduate of George Mason University School of Law and earned a bachelor’s degree from West Virginia University. He later completed the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government Management Program. He served in the U.S. Army from 1969 to 1971.

Commissioner Wolfe served with the U.S. State Department during the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and Fisheries Affairs with the rank of Ambassador.

Community service is important to the Commissioner and he always made time in his busy law career to volunteer with local non-profit organizations. He was a founding board member of the Bremerton Boys & Girls Club, member of the Bremerton Rotary, and board member of the Kitsap County Historical Society, Olympic College Foundation and Admiral Theater. He is also past president of both the Puget Sound Naval Base Association and the Bremerton Chamber of Commerce and served on the Bremerton Planning Commission.

Commissioner Wolfe and his wife, Wendy Miles, live in Bremerton and have long enjoyed the natural environment of Kitsap County, hiking, boating and kayaking. Their 26-year-old son lives and works in the Washington D.C. area.
