Eliminate the Healthy Worksite Initiative

The Healthy Worksite Initiative has wasted thousands of dollars and don't see much benefit. Agencies do not need a wellness coordinator to tell them to wash their hands after using the restroom. Allowing state employees to spend time blogging on a wellness site, exercise freely as they wish, have quiet rooms in the facilities is a complete WASTE. Americans are still overweight and out of shape. If the governor truly wishes to improve the health of Washington state employees, retirees and their dependents then there should probably be some measurements to that goal. Is she going to start weighing employees before and after?
