The next step


Yesterday I participated in my final public appearance as your Washington State Attorney General. I had the honor of once again addressing a joint session of state legislature, and my message was a simple one – thank you for the opportunity to serve.

And today, as I leave the office I have proudly led for the last eight years, I wanted to share that same message with my longest and strongest supporters – thank you.

It has been you and tens of thousands of others like you across our state who have provided me with the support, advice and inspiration that have made these years the most professionally satisfying of my life. Words can’t really express the gratitude I have for you all for giving me this opportunity.

I am now turning the page on that chapter in my life, and looking forward to returning to private law practice and life a political volunteer. I certainly hope our paths will be crossing sometime in the not-to-distant future.

As part of my effort to remain involved in the critical public policy issues facing our state and nation, I will continue to use my email list and social networking tools to communicate my views. However, I want to respect your desires about hearing from me, so if you could, please click here and take just a minute to fill out a short survey, so I know whether you want to continue to remain on my list, and what your suggested priorities are for me to concentrate on in the coming weeks and months.

Thank you and God bless you,


PS – I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the issues that still face our state, so I appreciate your taking the time to complete the short survey. Also, if we haven’t already, please connect with me on Facebook and Twitter.
