Excerpts from HR director’s notes in Ladiser case

Here are some excerpts from notes taken during a July 14 conversation between Snohomish County human resources director Bridget Clawson and former planning director Craig Ladiser. County officials recently found the notes in Clawson’s files. Those referenced by first name only are Mike Pattison and Sam Anderson of the Master Builders and Brian Parry, Ladiser’s former boss, and an executive director for County Executive Aaron Reardon:

  • Mike was told by Sam [arrow] his thinking apology and seek treatment – to handle.

    Have not resigned S.C. If I did something like this, you will have to fire me.

    30 day admin leave – But not for anything sexual –

    “I called Sam after talking to Brian. I told Sam sorry

    Sam ‘don’t want you to resign. Find a way to work together.’”

    May have called Sam before Brian.

    Sam facilitate [sic] in his Bellevue office. Oversee Meeting, to reconcile.

    Mike [arrow] don’t do anything rash. “Damage control” Sam told Mike to handle.

    Assume I have to leave but I want to be professional as possible.
