Fixing Broken Bureaucracies

Inslee's lack of executive leadership or disinterest in matters unrelated to climate change is creating broken bureaucracies.


A governor needs to ensure kids learn, traffic moves, prisons work, and that government does efficiently what it’s supposed to do.

Bill Bryant has experience with investigations into management failures at public agencies. Within weeks of him being sworn in as a port commissioner in 2008, he was appointed to chair an investigation into possible fraud in the building of the third runway at SeaTac Airport.

Leading that investigation taught Bill the importance of gathering information quickly, so the truth can be found and the bureaucracy fixed.

From ethical questions at the Department of Commerce, to a Department of Transportation that creates traffic jams, to a Department of Corrections that releases prisoners early, to a state hospital that enables patient abuse and spends money without a plan, to serious morale problems at the state patrol, Inslee's lack of executive leadership or disinterest in matters unrelated to climate change is creating broken bureaucracies.
