Candidates doing their homework

At today’s state Land Board meeting, the Democratic and Republican candidates for state controller were both there – right in the front row, each holding a stack of documents and following along closely. They also happened, by luck, to be sitting right next to each other.

That’s Republican Donna Jones, in the pink, and Democrat Jackie Groves Twilegar, in the dark suit.

The state controller, of course, serves on the state Land Board – perhaps the highest-profile part of the controller’s job, which otherwise consists of overseeing the state’s payroll, accounting, central computer system, and so forth.
