Bredesen continues to say that downsizing State Govt

is good management at just about every opportunity he gets. Kudos to the Gov for pointing out this dynamic which very few elected officials are willing to acknowledge. Bureaucracies simply will not make hard decisions about staff and efficiency unless they are faced with staff reductions.

“Some of the departments did a great job and really flattened down those middle management structures that had gotten very big and very kind of bad. That’s something I could not have gotten done in a good year, but in a tough year like this is a great time, just as it is in business, to do that.”
