Over the past year I have talked often about “streamlining” government. Since being sworn in as a commissioner, I’ve worked to transition the talk into action. As I and the other new commissioners have gone about our work, it hadn’t occurred to me that there might be some confusion as to what is meant by streamlining. Recently however, a few members of CCEC and one of my fellow commissioners have expressed confusion when the topic of streamlining arises. Since I expect to be focusing on the topic over the next four years I thought it would be a good idea to let everyone know what I’m thinking when I say “streamline”.
