Governor-elect Jay Inslee said during the campaign that on day one, he'd hire “disruptive agents who want to bring change to state government.” Now if you're all a-happy or a-scared about a Cuban-style revolution redux, you can probably relax. Inslee, a Democrat, may not be announcing a lot of hires yet, but his transition team has just been announced — and it looks pretty vanilla.
In fact, it's about as establishment as you can get. Included in the list are the heads of business and chamber of commerce groups, as well as labor groups, large special interests and and a smattering of politicians. View the full list here.
Included is retiring Sen. Majority Leader Lisa Brown of Spokane. We've got a call out to her on other matters, so I'll ask about the transition team.
