Eye On Olympia

Wanting more bark in the watchdog…

“I don’t want it to be collegial. I want it to be a lot more hostile.”

—Initiative promoter Tim Eyman, on the mutual praise between State Auditor Brian Sonntag and the state Department of General Administration during the first of a long series of new performance audits.

(Despite the mutual admiration, Sonntag’s staff found that the agency had 113 “underused” state vehicles that should be sold or reassigned, that it’s rental rates to state agencies don’t cover its operating expenses and that the agency should stop financing the vehicles it buys, in order to save millions of dollars in interest.)
