    I know we’re heavily focused on the proposed reservation system at the moment, but we also need to stay on top of what’s happening with WSF in terms of increased costs for mandated staffing levels, the cost of repairing the Walla Walla, and the idea of converting to liquid natural gas. Each of these will impact decisions made during the upcoming legislative session which, in turn, will impact those of us living in ferry dependent communities.

      This is why it is imperative that you share your thoughts about the reservation system with your legislators and Governor-elect Inslee. Here are their names and email addresses: Sen. Kevin Ranker (kevin.ranker@leg.wa.gov), Rep. Kris Lytton (kristine.lytton@leg.wa.gov), Rep. Jeff Morris (jeff.morris@leg.wa.gov), Jay Inslee (info@jayinslee.com). They will respond if they have evidence that their constituents care about what’s happening.
