On Monday, former Stranger news editor Josh Feit introduced Publicola, a news and opinion site intended, amongst other things, to help fill the gap in WA state political coverage left by our ever shrinking political press corps. Check it out.
Well today I’m pleased to announce HA’s own extended Olympia coverage with the addition of Bryan Bissell to our stable of bloggers. Some of you may remember Bryan from PolitickerWA, where he covered state politics for much of the past year before its investor pulled the plug. Bryan is a Tacoma native, and conveniently, a current resident of Olympia, from where he will be providing his own coverage and commentary of this year’s momentous legislative session.
I don’t pretend that Bryan and Josh can make up for the number of political reporters we’ve lost over the past couple years. But they’ll try.
