The timing seems to suspiciously align with the puget sound chinook management plan debacle...
This times a bazillion. Our fisheries situation is quicksand and his lack of experience in that arena finally got him. His resignation was called for last week and now we get it. Time for a new Inslee puppet.
:yeah:

He might be a real nice guy, I really don't know, but that doesn't matter one way or another, it seemed like either his hands were tied or he was in over his head on quite a few issues, and that is what does matter.
His hands were tied because that's how the law says it should be. The Director is not the overall decision maker of the department, that's the Fish and Wildlife Commission. Too many people think the Director makes all the decisions and calls all the shots. In most cases the Director simply manages the people in the department, the policies we all hate/love are made by the Commission.

As in point, the recent salmon decision. The department sent their proposed policy to the feds without running it through the commission, a big no-no.

I think what needs to change is the Commission needs to be elected by the people. Not selected by the Governor. Treat like your local school board. Require people from each region of the state.  :dunno: As long as Insleez keeps deciding who's on the commission nothing's gonna change.

Didn't see this coming, flipped on the radio last night and they were talking about Shirato, then I see BT's post this morning.

Maybe the Commission is the problem.  This place has been a mess for decades.  They need a strong competent boss who will run things, fire those that need to be fired and duct tape the commission.   But like the relationship between the Seattle City Council, the SPD and the Seattle School district,  that is an impossible task to wish for.

Currently the commission must come from various areas of the state, but the governor picks them so we get commission members he is willing to approve. The problem with voting in commission members is that wildlife management becomes even more political.
Americans are systematically advocating, legislating, and voting away each others rights. Support all user groups & quit losing opportunity!

I don't see voting in the commission as a good thing.

How about the commission being appointed by the WDFW managers from each district
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.

I'm all for whatever will make a change in this system that will take the power away from the Governor to choose the commission members and put members in place that represent the true interests of sportsmen in this state. I'm tired of Olympia's BS. I don't like the idea of naming a new state Liberty but I do like the idea of dividing our state in half because of crap like this.

How about the employees of WDFW? It would take the power from one person furthering their political or person agenda. It would also keep the majority of the residence of WA from picking them, if they were to be voted in by a state wide election.

I think WDFW employees are the last people we want picking the commission.   :twocents:

Iíve heard that the biologists tried to up the quotas on lions a couple of years ago and it got nixed by the governor.  :dunno:
