Sounds like there’s some sort of sexual harassment scandal type thing going on according to Kiro radio story on this a little bit ago. Not sure if it’s related to Unsworth’s resignation, but the timing sure is coincidental.

I was a little surprised when he took the job.  I believe that story was just breaking when he took over.  It just took this long to go to trial and get finalized.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I'm surprised he lasted this long.

Who in their right mind would want that job?

No kidding. Between ESA, animal rights state, tribal issues, no support from hunters/fishermen... you’re between a rock and a hard spot.

What seems coincidental is that a former WDFW employee was found guilty of rape today, the same day Director Unsworth resigns. Unsworth wasn't even around when that happened, but still seems odd.

Good riddance.  This guy was clueless about anything that swims.  And predators too.  I just seen this on the news and screamed happiness.

90% of the job is fisheries related...Unsworth was a wildlife guy.  I saw him as someone who might be able to make solid improvements but I think ultimately the system/politics were just too powerful, corrupt, and demoralizing for him to want to continue on....and with 33 years on the job, a couple of state retirement systems, stock market going gang busters...he  took a look at his retirement portfolio, his upcoming work schedule/issues and came to his senses!  Wouldn't be surprised if ends up back in Idaho...either as a retired guy hunting or possibly back to IDFG.

Wonder how much cash he pocketed for the closed door Tribal meeting he had with them to set the next 10yr fisheries program?

He didn’t last like long.
Agency director's rarely get to 5 years.

It is coincidental. Shirato was guilty and that was pretty evident from the start.

Maybe he'll start a wildlife conflict mediation consulting firm and get a million a year hosting meetings between wildlife agencies and other groups. :yike:

The timing seems to suspiciously align with the puget sound chinook management plan debacle...

And he must have signed off on the $1,600,000 that went to the wolf/conflict consultant.

 :hello:

I'll listen more when I get to keep the same fish the tribes do, share the resource and all that BS.  Oh yeah, and I don't get in trouble for killing craps of seabirds or blowing through Orca pods in my boat.
