The Ferry Community Partnership (FCP) is holding a meeting in Bremerton on Saturday, January 7 from 10:30 a.m. to approximately 2:30 p.m. With the short (60-day) legislative session starting about that time, it’s critical that the group use that day to solidify goals and plan strategies for lobbying as early in the session as possible.
Residents of the San Juan Islands are encouraged to attend this important meeting. The FCP has offered to open their local meeting at 10:30 a.m. and deal with other business until we could arrive a little before noon. Then work on the issues mentioned above until about 2:30 p.m.
I do plan to attend this meeting, weather permitting. It will be a long day. Winter schedule will be in effect, and the Saturday schedule is not conducive for a quick turn-around. We would need to catch the boat that leaves Friday Harbor at 6:25 a.m. aand stops at every island and then get down to Bremerton. I don’t think it’s possible to return home before the 8:20 or 8:55 boat that night.
If anyone from any of the islands is at all interested in driving down with me, or in going down on their own, please let me know by Thursday, December 22nd by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by posting a reply to this message. I know things can change between now and then, but I need to let Adam and Kari know if anyone else is interested.
