Assessor urged to resign

Deputy angling for job

Rich Medved, chief deputy of King County Assessor Scott Noble and a longtime Snohomish County voter, wants the voters of King County to believe that his move to King County was not connected to his running for office.

Let’s look at the time frame. Medved registered as a King County voter on March 31. Noble was involved in a vehicular assault on Jan. 18. He pleaded guilty March 19. This all occurred before Medved registered to vote in King County.

He now states he is “getting caught in the crossfire” over when Nobel will resign [“Deputy tells Noble: Do ‘not prolong this thing,’ ” NWFriday, May 22]. He is the same person who is putting pressure on the assessor to resign and “not prolong this thing.” It has been written that Noble had a drinking problem. Why did Medved cover this up all these years?

I think King County voters can do a lot better in choosing a new assessor.
