Auditor Sonntag Wins Open Gov't Award

The (Tacoma) News Tribune reports that State Auditor Brian Sonntag has won the James Andersen award by the Washington Coalition for Open Government.

We have worked with Sonntag and know him to be the real deal when it comes to open government. Congratulations, Governor. (Under the constitutional line of succession when the Governor is absent, Sonntag was the governor for about three days around Christmas and technically is a former Governor so he retains the title of "Governor." He laughs when people call him that.)
