Gov. Chris Gregoire addressed hundreds of teachers in Tacoma this morning at a conference sponsored by the state school superintendent’s office. The governor touted efforts to reduce class sizes and raise teacher pay. But one of her biggest applause lines came when she announced husband Mike’s take on daughter Courtney’s upcoming wedding.
"My husband’s philosophy is that his job is to show up, shut up and pay up," Gregoire said. "He is performing admirably."
