A Heads Up on Governor’s Proposed Budget

Sorry to inundate you with posts today, but I thought you would want this heads up. Kari Ulatoski of the FCP just emailed to say that the governor’s proposed budget includes additional cuts to runs in the San Juan Islands and Bremerton. She is waiting to hear from David Moseley exactly what these are. As soon as I know anything, I will post the information here.

There are petitions in the Village at Caffe la Boheme, Isabel’s, Islehaven Books, the library, and Paper, Scissors on the Rock. If you have a moment while in the Village, please sign one and encourage friends and neighbors to do the same. You also have the option of downloading and distributing petitions on your own by clicking here.

I’m told that state legislators did not get much push-back from residents of the San Juans the last time this happened, leaving the impression that islanders didn’t care. We know that simply is not true. Please take time to make our voices heard. Thanks!
