Political musings from Warren E. Peterson

Hey Chris, Hire Dino

Posted by Warren Peterson on November 7, 2008

In a post election news conference, Dino Rossi said he “offered his services and help” to Governor Gregoire and “wanted her to be successful as Governor.”

In Governor Gregoire’s news conference, she responded that she “would take him up on his offer.” She also said “I do not intend… (to raise taxes)” and that “now is not the time to raise taxes.” She noted that the state faces a deficit and economic challenges which will require everyone’s help to solve. Gregoire deplored the divisiveness of the campaign said we “need to put that behind us.”

Well, here’s an opportunity to demonstrate her commitment to all these promises. Hire Dino Rossi as Director of the Office of Financial Management. He would be invaluable in that role to help the Governor write a bi-partisan, balanced, no tax increase budget.

    Nice thought! Somehow, I don’t think it’s happening but Dino would be great for this position, wouldn’t he?
    I found your blog in a post on Sound Politics and it was quite interesting. Your ideas for school reform make a lot of sense.
