Ferguson to run for state attorney general

King County Council Law and Justice Chair Bob Ferguson, a reformer and advocate for children, families and veterans, will run for the office of Attorney General in 2012.

Ferguson, a Democrat, currently represents King County District 1, which includes the communities of Bothell, Kenmore, Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, North Seattle and parts of Woodinville and unincorporated King County.

“The attorney general must be the leading legal advocate for the people of Washington,” said Ferguson in a press release. “I am running to redouble our commitment to consumer protection during this recession, increase our efforts to protect this environment, keep our citizens safe and be an advocate for our veterans.”
