Please describe your top 5 priorities if elected Attorney General:


Protect our Families by Promoting Public Safety

Nothing is more important than protecting the public from harm and keeping the worst offenders off the streets. No budget crisis, regardless of its severity, should short-change our right to adequate protection from lawlessness. As Attorney General, I will work with local  jurisdictions to fight gun and gang violence, while helping some of our state's smaller communities with the tremendous cost of prosecuting dangerous offenders.


Increase Transparency In Government

Citizens have the right to know the activities of their governments at all levels. The government continues to struggle with full and timely disclosure of pubic information. The improper and non-uniform handling of public records requests costs the state millions each year in legal fees and settlements. As Attorney General, I will develop model rules and training programs for all state employees while improving the use of technology to keep our public records accessible.

Improve our Jobs Climate

 Washington State needs family-wage jobs. One of the best ways to accomplish that is to give workers, businesses and entrepreneurs the tools they need to succeed: a level playing field, protection from unscrupulous competitors, and a regulatory environment that never loses its sights on getting people back to work. As Attorney General, I will bring together the Attorney General's task force on regulatory reform. As general counsel to Washington State, the attorney general has the unique opportunity to look at the operations of every state agency to ensure efficiency and accountability. To accomplish this, we need state officials who honor your contributions as a taxpayer rather than view you as an ATM.

Get the Most of our Tax Dollars

I am a proven fiscal conservative who will protect our rights and our wallets. Washington State has one of the highest rates of payouts due to lawsuits. These lawsuits cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars that could go to basic needs like our public schools. As Attorney General, I will work with all state agencies to manage risk to stop these lawsuits before they happen.

Protect Consumers and our Most Vulnerable Citizens

In this struggling economy, families are more at risk. As a federal prosecutor and as a private attorney, I prosecuted many cases of fraud and worked closely with Washington's Consumer Protection Act. As Attorney General, I will protect consumers by enforcing Washington State law to the fullest while making sure the rights of our most vulnerable citizens are protected.
