According to the Post Intelligencer, former Washington Utilities and Transportation chairman Mark Sidran, a former Seattle prosecutor, has joined the field.

And so has state Sen. Phil Rockefeller, D-Bainbridge Island.

Since leaving his job as Pierce County executive, John Ladenburg has hung his shingle out at his sons’ law firm in Tacoma. He’s “of counsel.” He told me last week he’s also doing some consulting work for Cascadia developer Patrick Kuo.

The P.I. points out that U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Belfair, will have a big say in who President Obama nominates for the Environmental Protection Agency job in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, etc. Dicks over sees the EPA budget.

My money’s still on Ladenburg. He and Dicks go way back.

Here is the post by Joel Connelly at the P.I.
