Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon exits

EVERETT (AP) — Once a rising star in Washington politics, Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon leaves office today in the middle of his third term.

Reardon has been investigated but never charged with using public resources on his campaign and with a mistress.

In a recent interview with KING5, he again denied misusing taxpayer money but said, “We all make mistakes.”

Reardon announced in February that he would step down at the end of May. He hasn’t said what he’ll do next.

The Snohomish County Council will select Reardon’s replacement next week from three candidates nominated by local Democrats.
