Dave Reichert: I'm supporting Mike Vaska for Attorney General

As a former sheriff, I can tell you how important it is to have an Attorney General who works with our state’s law enforcement community to keep us safe. That’s why I’m supporting Mike Vaska to be our next Attorney General.

More than ever, we need someone like Mike Vaska leading the AG’s office. To understand why, look no further than a recent op-ed I wrote about the chaos in Seattle, with elected officials abandoning the rule of law, and their oath to protect and defend our communities.

Ask yourself, what has Bob Ferguson been doing over the last few months? Instead of taking action to protect our communities, Bob Ferguson has been issuing press releases about how many times he’s sued the President.

But when a mob of protestors forced the police to abandon its precinct headquarters and declared a large portion of Capitol Hill to be an “autonomous zone,” Bob Ferguson stayed silent. That isn’t the leadership we need in the Attorney General’s office to keep our state safe.

I know as Attorney General, Mike Vaska will show leadership and will not be silent on the important issues we’re facing. Mike has decades of experience as a professional lawyer, and as a community and political leader. He has a proven ability to bring people together to solve tough challenges.

That’s why I’m asking you to join with me today in making a contribution and voting for Mike Vaska.
 I know from my successful campaigns for Congress that it takes a lot of work and a lot of money to win.

It’s time for an Attorney General who stands up for the rule of law. Please join me in supporting and voting for Mike Vaska.

Thank you,
