I feel Gregoire is making decisions in an impractical way. I do beleive her reasoning is to make herself look good in the end regardless if it's the right choice to help our struggling economy. Who's best interest is her decisions really going to effect? Nothing she is doing makes any sense. I do agree that she has now pushed the timeline up so that it cannot be reversed and I say that only because of the irrational decisions she has made in the past. Hpoefully the people will see this and next election Gregoire will be out. She doesn't make decisions in the best interest of Washington and the people of Washington.

I feel like this is a big mess. Closing Larch is going to cost the community more in the long run. All the services that the inmates provide thorugh various work groups like CWC, DNR, and regular DOC employed inmates; the work that they do in the commmunity of Clark County as well as accross the State of Washington is wonderful. Fighting fires, replanting trees, cleaning the community, restoring parks, the list goes on and on. the inmates need to have these work camps, it provides a strong rehabilitation therapy to almost all of them that embrace the programs, and want to turn their lives around, and have some skills to become employed when they get released, taking Larch Correction Center from Clark County is a big mistake!!!!!
