So... it's an election year, as we all know. With the upcoming election, we get attacks on candidates, campaign promises, and yes... the incumbent in any position does everything he or she can do to keep his or her job.
In Washington, our governor spent 8 billion dollars more than the previous governor did in his 8-year term... in just four years. How does she make up for it? Hiring freeze. Personal Service Contract freeze. Minimizing travel. Oh yes... and today she said, several of you (state employees) have suggested four 10-hour day work weeks. I have shared this with agency directors and we are definitely looking into it. Smile smile, grin grin, all is happy in O-Town.
Anyone else feel played?
