Nielsen concluded that Nichols likely “made overtures of romantic interest to Ms. Hendrickson for a period of several months in 2015, that he occasionally made indirect actions thereafter that Ms. Hendrickson could reasonably interpret as suggesting a continued romantic interest, and that some of Mr. Nichols’ attention was likely unwelcome to Ms. Hendrickson, but that Mr. Nichols did not create an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment for Ms. Hendrickson.”
So he did "make overtures of romantic interest." He did "make indirect actions." And what he absolutely did was "unwelcome." AND YET...This ongoing, improper behavior somehow did not create an intimidating or hostile work environment???
Thanks for the handshake, but...
Mark would really prefer a hug.
Boy, Mark Nichols sure got his money's worth out of that "independent" "investigation."
It is insanity like this that helps breed mistrust in government, and, on a larger scale, leads to things like people voting for Donald Trump. If the local Democrats had two brain cells to rub together, they'd be all over this issue.
But of course, the Clallam County Democrats do not have two brain cells to rub together. Hell, they'll probably praise Nichols for his steadfast perseverance or something "balanced" like that.
And the cynicism and dysfunction continues to fester...Just another great day in Port Angeles, to be sure.
