Let it never be said that Governor Bill Ritter is not a man of big ideas:
In a recent letter to state employees in the state publication Stateline, Ritter talks about the hard economic times and thanks employees for their hard work.
He then applauds a stress-reducing move by the Department for Health Care Policy and Financing to extend â€œâ€˜dress down Fridaysâ€™ to every day of the week.â€
Senator Ted Harvey wondered whether it might be an April Fools Day joke. I’m wondering if it was an idea hatched as the result of his executive order authorizing collective bargaining — er, employee partnerships.
Whatever it is, somehow methinks this wasn’t the dressing down being cited by our governor. Five days a week of that would make most anyone want to quit.
But anyway, moving on…
