Dan Twohig works with WSF and was involved yesterday in a meeting with the Governor about the ferry system. He has an opportunity to provide suggestions on how to address current financial issues and would like input from as many ferry users as possible, but he needs it by noon on Sunday. This is a chance for your ideas to be funneled directly to the Governor. Here is Dan’s request:
Despite the brief, general press release yesterday, we were fortunate to have the Governor’s undivided attention for almost two hours! The meeting was both upbeat and sobering. We provided the Governor with suggestions to fix some of our problems and we have the opportunity to do more.
The Governor asked us for suggestions for ways to save money at WSF that will offset the increase in crew costs. We will have her attention for the next several days but that window may soon close. We need to get back to her early this week.
I would like you all to brainstorm ideas to save money at WSF. We need to squeeze every dollar we can out of this effort. No idea is too stupid or too crazy to be considered for our submission.
Please send your ideas to me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you think they need to be posted to the newsgroups for discussion, that’s fine but we don’t have time for huge arguments.
Please give me a one paragraph statement of your idea. If you feel you need to back it up, I want a concise briefing paper no more than ONE page in length.
I need this ASAP, preferably by noon on Sunday.
Again, this is a brainstorm. No idea is too crazy or too stupid to be considered for our submission to the Governor.
Thanks for your help.
