Arun Raha reads from a list of his Top 10 “Arun-isms”.
OLYMPIA — Dr. Arun Raha, the state's chief economist who delivered some the worst financial news in more than a half-century but managed a quip or a laugh to help ease the pain, is stepping down.
“I'm going back to the private sector, and anonymity, hopefully,” he said today at a press conference. He's taking a job as director of corporate economics for a company in Ohio.
Raha was appointed to the state Economic and Revenue Forecast Council in 2008, and his tenure has been marked by the worst economic downturn in the state since the Great Depression.
