Nathan Schlicher, ESQ., asked to withdraw his candidacy for state Representative

The election laws of WA State, RCW 29A.24.075, are explicit in that …

(2) Excluding the office of precinct committee officer or a temporary elected position such as a charter review board member or freeholder, no person may file for more than one office.

330px-Nathan_SchlicherNathan Schlicher, a lawyer, is a candidate for Representative, District 26, Position 1, already holds a public office and in fact holds a “quasi-judicial” office and is therefore “DISQUALIFIED” by law, to seek a second office.

A letter was sent to Schlicher asking him to withdraw due to this conflict he has with the law by seeking a “second office” with the state.

The contents of this letter follow:

Dr. Nathan Schlicher, Esq., WSBA #32795
PO Box 2082
Gig Harbor WA 98335

Dear Dr. Schlicher,
The Secretary of State notes that you are a candidate for Representative, 26 District, Position 1.
It is my belief and my hope that you will withdraw your candidacy for the following reasons.

  • You are a member of a state agency, the WA State Bar, which is under the Judicial Br. See RCW 2.48.010 and RCW 2.48.060
  • You are a “public officer and officer of the court” by your membership with the WA State Bar. See Rules of Profession Conduct – Preamble. See DIKE v. DIKE 75 Wn.2d 1, 5 “The lawyer’s duty is of a double character. He owes to his client the duty of fidelity, but he also owes the duty of good faith and honorable dealing to the judicial tribunals before whom he practices his profession. He is an officer of the court – a minister in the temple of justice.”
  • The WA State Bar, through its lobbying arm, lobbies the legislature
  • You pay a fee to the WA State Bar which fee is used to fund their lobbying activities.
  • Because you serve in, and regulated by, one branch of government, you should not be a candidate for an elective position within another branch of government.

    I request you withdraw your candidacy as a fair and impartial government is
    at stake.

    Bill Scheidler
    Candidate for Representative, 26th District, Position 1
    Cc: Mr. Jesse Young

Keep Posted as these events unfold.

Dear. Mr. Scheidler –

Thank you for your email and correspondence, I look forward to a spirited and thoughtful campaign this year for the House Seat here in the 26th District with you and Mr. Young.

I appreciate your thoughts as to my candidacy, but respectfully disagree. As you identified in your salutation, I am an ER doctor and have been doing so as my job, not practicing as an attorney.

Thank you for sharing your concerns with me and I look forward to meeting you in person in the coming weeks and months.

One thought on “Nathan Schlicher, ESQ., asked to withdraw his candidacy for state Representative

  1. Bravo, and good job Bill. IN New York “double-dipping” is rampant and these characters see an unending gravy train to be absorbed …of course at Taxpayers’ expense….one of these days everyone will stop a moment and “connect the dots”….

    Another great article!! I sent to Linkden and Google last nite.
