McKenna to Inslee: Democrats in charge for years

What two or three policies of the governor would you reverse to help us avoid endless deficits?

Inslee: We should be using leaner management. I have not been the person who has not been in Olympia for the last seven years. I'm not beholden to people. I can bring in new blood.

We need to have a system of preventative health care. I intend to adopt a system to have efficiencies in dual eligibles.

McKenna: The governor would be surprised to hear there's no Lean management in government. DSHS has it, my office has it She'd be surprised to hear there haven't been efforts to bring down health care costs.
