Connecting Washington Task Force

Last month, members of the Connecting Washington Task Force were announced. There are 30 (or so) people on this task force which is charged with recommending statewide transportation funding solutions for the next 10 years. There is broad representation, but no one on the task force specifically speaks for the ferry system. For those of us living in ferry-dependent communities, this could be problematic.

The task force will be working between now and Thanksgiving. It is critical that readers take the time now to contact the task force to express concern about how ferry funding issues will be addressed.

Our local Ferry Advisory Committee has done a great job explaining the role of the task force and in providing one-click information for reaching out to the task force. Please click here to access the FAC website, read the information, and submit your comments. I’ve completed the survey. It’s quick and easy to do.

Share this post widely. I will add it to Lopez Rocks for residents of Lopez. Residents of other islands, please post links to this message on your local news sites. Let’s be sure the task force knows we care!
