Jim Hightower once said to me “ if the Gods had wanted us to vote they would have given us candidates.”
Bob Fergusson, Washington State Attorney General
In November 2013, Everett Washington attorney Bob Ferguson defeated Regan Dunn. Reagan Dunn is a drunk, a King County council member, a hater of open government, and member with strong ties to the Republican party, while Bob Ferguson is a man who at least talked a good game about Open Government. A good game until he managed to obtain the seat.
Soon after duping the voters, Bob Fergusson began fighting with open government supporters in favor of assisting criminals like Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Gold Bar’s Mayor Linda “high as a kite” Leon.
Unlike his predecessor, the Honorable Rob McKenna, Bob Ferguson immediately snubbed open government by hiring an incompetent attorney to head the agency’s open government division, Nancy Krier, firing long term open government supporter and attorney Tim Ford.
Nancy Krier “ no friend to open government, or the Democratic Party”
Under Our Supreme Court’s mandate, the attorney general office shall issue an open government opinion, to the public or an agency, if requested to do so. This is Ms. Krier’s only function, other than collecting her taxpayer funded welfare check of $150,000,00 per year.
The whole purpose of an open government attorney ( and why my tax dollars are being used) is to provide the public with opinions as they relate to issues that arise around public records cases, thus limiting liability to the agency. In other words, to help alleviate the cost of litigating public records cases verses complying with he public records act.
In 2015, the Gold Bar Reporter sent the Washington State Attorney General’s office a public records request seeking all responses to agency employees verses responses given to the public, as it relates to open government questions and opinions.
With no surprises to those of us watching Attorney General Bob Fergusson’s blatant disrespect for open government supporters over the last 2.5 years, Nancy Krier refused to provide a single response to a single open government supporter from the public, but provided continuous support to agency employees for years.
In 2014, the Gold Bar Reporter and several citizens filed a Recall Petition against corrupt Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe. Once filed, the Attorney General’s Office became the “Friend of the Court.” In Recall Petitions the Friend of Court is suppose to construe laws in favor of the voters, not the public officials.
For me this was odd to say the least. Several citizens and I file a Recall Petition to oust corrupt Prosecutor Mark Roe and the Attorney General’s Office is somehow to suppose to be the Friend of Court in favor of the voters when it won’t even provide a public opinion on whether Gold Bar’s refusal to answer public records requests since 2009 is “reasonable’ under the Public Records Act (RCW 42.56)?
Then in 2015, I saw additional public records between Mark Roe and Bob Ferguson as it relates to Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe trying to trump criminal charges on the Gold Bar Reporter for informing the public that Crystal Hill ( a woman we now know Mark Roe had an extramarital affair with, guilty of abusing kids, and convicted of bank fraud 2005) and a pedophile named John E. Pennington ( a man responsible for the rape of a 5 year old girl, linked to missing children in at least 4 states, and man King County judge held was responsible for causing the deaths of 43 Oso Washington mudslide victims) for attempting to warn the public via First Amendment protected activity ( news reporting).
Over the last year, I’ve become a regretful supporter of Bob Ferguson. However, the alternative was a drunk with strong an anti-government stance, Reagan Dunn, whose only claim to fame is his mommy’s political ties to the Republican Party.
In the next election, there’s going to be a candidate, and just like how we booted corrupt Snohomish County Executive John Lovick and Aaron Reardon, Bob Ferguson will be ousted and replaced by a person who understands that its “ we the people” that voted him in and we will vote his corrupt self out.
