Eye On Olympia

Stranger’s political reporter stepping down…

Josh Feit, political writer for Seattle's The Stranger, is leaving.

I’ve been planning this for a while (I wanted to get in one more legislative session), so I’ve saved enough money to cool out for a bit while looking for a new job.

he writes on the paper's blog, the Slog.

Feit worked hard to cover Olympia's undercurrents, blasting Frank Chopp in a long story last year and unabashedly lobbying hard for certain bills. From a January story:

Sigh. The do-gooder lobbyists understand the Democratic mandate: low expectations.

This is unacceptable. This is the second year in a row of heavy Democratic majorities in both houses. It's time for the Democrats to deliver. This should be a time of high expectations, not low ones.

Objective? Absolutely not. But Feit provided a valuable finger on the pulse of urban liberals, and added news heft to the postings on the Slog.
