Proposed Dept. of Grievances, Solutions and Whistleblowers

The following is an organization chart for King County Council, Dist. 9, candidate Mark Greene's proposal for a new county department, "The Department of Grievances, Solutions and Whistleblowers." Mark's idea may draw unfair criticism about an increased bureaucracy, but actually this proposal would decrease the bureaucracy by consolidating other county sections or departments into this proposed new department, which would be better for overall organization and efficiency. The aggregate savings the county would make from this new department would be in the millions over time and would more than make up for costs associated with starting a new department. Also, for more information regarding this matter, see previous "Commoner" essay entitled, "Mark's 'New Department' Idea," first published on 6/24/09.
