Eye On Olympia

A familiar name arrives in the capitol…

Two campaigns for the state legislature couldn’t quite do it, but it turns out that Spokane schools veteran Laurie Dolan is going to make it to Olympia after all.

Gov.-Elect Christine Gregoire on Friday morning named Dolan director of the governor’s Executive Policy Office. That means Dolan will be overseeing the work of about 20 subject-matter experts who will advise Gregoire on various issues.

Dolan’s said her key focus will be “How do we define a better future using limited public resources?” It’s a timely topic, with the state about to head into budget season with a $1.6 billion to $1.8 billion budget shortfall.
