Free Train and Bus service in Washington

All buses and trains should be free to use throughout the state. It would take a large number of cars off the road and save the citizens money while commuting to work or visiting other places. The cost to maintain the transportation infrastructure could be supported by commercial freight charges and a high tax on people that use private instead of public transportation.

Saving Million a Year

‎Monday, ‎16 ‎August, ‎2010 I suggest you change how the state medical pays for incontinent supplies. You could save a lot of money by giving each recipient a card that pays for the incontinent supplies. Let the recipent buy there own at a local store and you will save half or more on the incontinent supplies.

My car will hit 300,000 miles sometime this month, it's a little rough ...more »

Stop the Loopholes in the Education System

Make employees justify their work hours and what they did.

Make state and city workers justify their hours spent at work. I know of city employees that do very little at work and add hours to their time sheets they did not even work. Where are the time clocks? Where is the accountability? Why is there overtime? There is no one that oversees these employees so they can do whatever they want. This starts at the management level and continues down. Look at your seasonal employees ...more »
