Pat's rules: After 31 years as Snoqualmie's attorney, local native Pat Anderson handing off legal duties for retirement

  • Dec 4, 2013 at 12:50PM

Pat Anderson's career has taken a number of twists and turns. One road, however, kept leading him home. As a young lawyer, Anderson lucked out and got a job advising the government of his home city. He's been doing that job for more than 30 years, and his legal mind has become one of the longest serving institutional memories of the city. "An attorney always represents a client," said Anderson. "I advise the mayor and council when asked for advice. But when they've made a decision, it's my responsibility to use all lawful means to implement their decision. That's what I've tried to do, throughout my career."

  • Dec 6, 2013 at 1:41PM
