After 8 years of being chauffeured, Gregoire to get driving lesson
Originally published on Thu December 13, 2012 6:53 pm
"I want to get in a car and just drive."
That's one of the freedoms Washington Governor Chris Gregoire is most excited to reclaim when she leaves office in January. For the past eight years, Gregoire has been relegated to the backseat of a Chevy Suburban chauffeured by the State Patrol. "I like driving and there's something that's freeing about [it]," says the governor.
But before Gregoire gets behind the wheel, she'll get a refresher course on how to drive - from the State Patrol.
"No one needs to panic. I'm going to go out to the academy and get some driving instruction to make sure that my skills are what they need to be cause after eight years I want to make sure."
Gregoire made her comments on TVW's "Inside Olympia" program.
