Reduce

spending and cut jobs.

I'd previously posted several items which listed specific departments, such as Cultural Resources and the Education Lottery along with the Governor's Office.

If she's truly serious, she should start with those 3 Departments. In a tight budget and economy, it is impossible to accept state employee salaries in excess of $200,000 for folks like the Lottery Director and the head of the State Art Museum.

When you talk about reducing staff, look at some of the agencies where you have 5 or more Assistant Directors as well as Executive Directors.

And how about hitting on the political hacks appointed to state Boards and Commissions where they earn $100,000 or more plus state health insurance for 5 to 7 days, or less in some cases, of work activity? Need an example -- look at the recently appointed head of the state Utility Commssion.

My posts merely hit the tip of the iceberg.

She could also ground herself and stop taking so many state funded trips with large entourages.
