Eye On Olympia

Johnson won’t run again in 2006…

State Sen. Stephen Johnson said Wednesday that he won’t seek re-election when his term expires at the end of next year.

Johnson, an attorney who’s been a lawmaker for 11 years, said he wants to “explore other options” in the legal field.

“I’ve come to the decision that it is time to seek a new challenge,” he said.

Johnson is the top-ranking Republican on the Senate judiciary committee and was deputy GOP leader in the Senate in 2001 and 2002.
