King County Councilman and attorney Bob Ferguson, who is running for state attorney general, made a campaign stop on March 3 at the Deer Park Pizza Factory to meet with 7th Legislative District Democrats.
Judge Bruce Hilyer, who is running for Washington State Supreme Court, attended the meeting.
â€śAs a fourth generation Washingtonian, my roots run deep in our state,â€ť said Ferguson, who has campaigned in 31 Washington State counties. â€śIn the 19th century, my great-grandparents homesteaded along the Skagit River. I have lived and worked on both sides of the mountains.â€ť
At the Deer Park meeting, Ferguson talked about protecting Washington State consumers from fraud and abuse. He pledged to make sure that Wall Street banks, which broke the law and wrecked our economy, are investigated and held accountable for their actions to ensure that it would not happen again.
He also talked about public safety and his leadership on the issue of gang violence.
â€śOur members were impressed with Mr. Fergusonâ€™s knowledge of attorney general issues,â€ť said Seventh Legislative District Democrats Chair Christine Clark. â€śWe were pleased that he flew by small plane to Deer Park to attend our quarterly meeting.â€ť
At the end of the meeting, the area Democrats voted to endorse Ferguson.
