Quit-and-hire costs the port in trust

The press release described the move as “unusual.” Port of Chelan County Commissioner Craig Larsen would resign to accept a paid position with the agency he was elected to oversee, a position created by the board on which he served (he abstained), his hiring decided by the port director he supervised. Larsen stood for election the previous November, unopposed, after his board discussed creating the position, budgeted for it, and he had expressed his interest in the job. The job was not advertised. There were no interviews. He resigns elective office just a few days after starting his new six-year term.

Yes, unusual. Legal perhaps, but covered with a sticky self-serving tar.
