Many reasons for his resignation
Reardon is resigning because of the corruption, lack of integrity, lack of a moral compass and lack of accountability to the taxpayers in him and the people he has surrounded himself with that has been brought to light. He has never answered questions from investigators or the media. He has hidden behind his lawyers and cohorts and insulated himself from the very people he claims he cares so much about. The fact that he is manipulating his alleged resignation to thwart the people's right to choose his successor further shows his disregard for the citizens of Snohomish County whom he claims he wants to serve. When he decides to run for another political office further up the Washington political food chain (and I guarantee he will) let's not be naïve. Reardon is counting on this and the "short memories" of voters. Let's be caring, informed and active participants in the political process and see to it that Reardon and politicians like him are encouraged to enter the private sector and have to actually work for a living like the rest of us.
