Below is an e-mail being sent out by John Ladenburg who was considering running to be the next Attorney General of Washington State.  Instead he has decided to run for the Washington State  Supreme Court.

This frees up the field for King County Councilmember Bob Ferguson who has already declared for the seat.  You can check out more about Bob’s campaign by going to his website at electbobferguson.com.  He also has a facebook page entitled Bob Ferguson for Attorney General which you can show your support on by “liking” him.

The PDC shows Democrat Bob Ferguson as currently raising $161,000 for his campaign.  Reports are filed monthly by the 10th of each month for the preceeding month. Reagan Dunn who is the Republican in the race has filed no contribution reports to date since he announced on June 13, 2011.  He claims on his website to have raised over $100,000 but nothing has been reported to the PDC yet.

Here is the e-mail from Democrat John Ladenburg announcing he is not running for Attorney General:

Dear Steve,

The past three months have been a very interesting time. I started out on a quest to determine if I should run for Attorney General and you and many others came to my support and helped me do the polling and research to examine that race. But, a funny thing happened along the way—many of you expressed your strong support and financial backing and also urged me to look at the office of Supreme Court Justice. While our polling and research shows I could win the office of Attorney General, your comments and advice convinced me that my experience is best served on the Supreme Court.

Therefore, having heard your advice and thoughts, I have decided to not run for Attorney General, but instead, seek a seat on the Washington Supreme Court.  I want to sincerely thank all of you for the support and advice. I know that some of you will be disappointed that I will not run for Attorney General. However, I believe that it is critical that our highest court have the broadest experience and expertise available and I think I could help insure that happens.

We will close down our exploratory committee for Attorney General and focus on the Supreme Court.  Under the rules of the court, judicial candidates cannot raise any campaign money until next February. The campaign will let you know when it can accept donations.

Finally, I wish to express my sincere thanks to all of you. Campaigning and public service is not easy, but having committed friends and supporters can make it much easier. Thank you for being there. I promise you that I will work as hard as I can to take a seat on the court and I promise that I will work hard on the court to do the people’s business, fair and just.

My humblest thanks,

John Ladenburg

    It would have been appropriate and courteous for Ladenburg to inform all those who contributed to his exploratory committee of this alternative, which they were never told he was considering, before or at least at the same time that he sent this email to the KCDCC chair.

  2. Dan Collins says:

    October 1994 – February 1995 Pierce County Prosecutor John Ladenburg attempted to frame me because I was researching my 1983 case.

    August 1997 – 2011 For the past fifteen years John Ladenburg and the Good Old Boy Network have blocked my constitutional guarantee to be represented by an attorney.

    Note: For the past six years I have presented on the Internet the information in these web sites. During that period I have been threatened, including death threats, but no one has threatened lawsuit, or attempted restraining orders. No corrupt authority wants me or my information in front of a jury.

    John Ladenburg is well aware my attorney Sverre Staurset admitted he participated in framing me in 1983, and accepted bribes from the State of Washington [1985, 1988, 1989] not to properly represent me, and not to sue the state. [Details in web site].

    As I stated at the beginning of this email:

    October 1994 – February 1995 Pierce County Prosecutor John Ladenburg attempted to frame me because I was researching my 1983 case.
