Seattle Times letters to the editor

February 27, 2013 at 7:00 AM

Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon resigns

Reardon’s exit makes little fuss

It sure is refreshing to see a politician resign instead of dragging things out and refusing to go out gracefully [“Defiant Reardon resigning,” page one, Feb. 22].

Aaron Reardon had a multitude of problems that seemed to start when he was first elected. Hopefully now that he is resigning, Snohomish County can now get past the burden of Reardon and all of the scandals he had and business can get back to usual.

–Jeff Swanson, Everett

Reardon’s actions question access to public records

I wonder if the shenanigans Aaron Reardon’s staff are accused of have made The Seattle Times editorial staff reconsider their opinion about setting some limits on the Washington State Public Records Act [“Public’s right to know should not be weakened,” Opinion, Feb. 15].

There should be rules to prevent using the system for harassment and/or wasting precious public money.

–Annie Bilotta, Seattle
