Former Gov. Mike Lowry was in Ulcer Gulch with the rest of the lobbyists yesterday. Citizen Mike has a particular interest in all things related to low-income housing, so he had a little concern about some budget provisions that might affect how his organization could borrow money to build said housing.
I think he is with the Renton Regional Housing Program.
He also asked me, “Is cynicism a course in journalism?”
(Must have been something I said.)
I told him “no.” It is a course in life, and I come by it honestly. It is a byproduct of a lifetime of dealing with all kinds of elected officials and public figures, some more truthful than others.
