On transparency and Olympia

Stiffing the public on the big budget issues in Olympia

“As a reporter, I always try to imagine what questions my audience might have. In the case of the state budget crisis, the two obvious questions seem to be: what are lawmakers going to cut and what might a tax hike package look like? Good luck getting a straight answer to either question.

Now, I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck. I know that politics dictates that politicians not reveal their strategic plans to the opposition party, voters or, God forbid, reporters. Nonetheless, the state is in a crisis and there’s a big lack of straight-talking going on in Olympia.”

I found this article on Crosscut this morning.  For some reason, it’s a little comforting to know that Conservatives aren’t the only ones feeling stymied by the closed door processes of our state Capitol.
