Is Violence Always the Answer? For Mark Ericks the SnoCo Deputy Exec it is

I wonder if Dave Gossett knows how lucky he was that he got out of SnoCo before Ericks went after him the way he went after Dave Somers.

As we all know Ericks got off scott free for that through a loophole because he is merely an “at will” employee. That needs to change because no matter his title or how he arrived, he is still being paid with tax payer monies.

Seems Gossett was asking too many questions and fissed off a Dick Carlson, who forwarded his message asking about costs for the new (unneeded) courthouse, to a Mark Thunberg who then runs to Ericks: Here is is his response

Mark – Got this from Dave Gossett this afternoon (not sure why he directs
this stuff to me, but probably still thinks of me in relationship to the old
master plan). Anyway, thought you should have this. I believe you met with
Ericks today so I don’t know if these questions relate to what is planned
for the presentation. Talk to you in the morning.

I’ve attached some questions for the architects/consultants about how the
plans and cost estimates were developed. I would find it helpful to know the
answers to these questions during the presentation. If they desire to
provide the information in writing prior to the meeting so as to not have to
go into this level of detail in the briefing that would be fine. Thanks.

I wonder just how many people he threatens on a daily basis.How many other county elected officials and county employees walk around in fear of this man?

It is indicative of an entire administration that is so totally out of control that it will end up collapsing on itself. Let’s hope that happens sooner then later.

For those of you who don’t know what a 12 gage shotgun with #1 buckshot does to a human body just look it up on google, it is horrifying though so be careful if you do.
