Eye On Olympia

Fairley jokes — I think — about patronage posts in the time of deep budget cuts…

Yes, golden parachutes on state boards are nice, Sen. Darlene Fairley says, but there’s serious budget cutting to do.

At issue was Senate Bill 6065, which would save $728,000 over the next two years by replacing the three-person, paid Liquor Control Board with part-time volunteers. The agency would be run by a full-time director.

“I keep saying: It saves over three quarters of a million,” Fairley told lobbyists unhappy about the proposed change.
