    Brilliant pick. Jim’s one of the most respected people in Olympia.

    Yes, Derek- so respected there was even a Jim Justin voodoo doll- which we gave up to him for his birthday a while back. AWC staff kept trying to sneak into his office and stick pins in it… :)

    Maybe we need to get it back so the lobbyists can help get their bills signed by the Gov…

    But yes- Jim is a great guy- a bit insane to take on this new role, but it was easier than running for the Olympia school board…

    LOL! :)
