I don’t have an agenda yet, but am going to publish the formal invitation to Saturday’s Ferry Community Partnership meeting in Bremerton. If you can, I hope you will attend. If it’s not possible to go to Bremerton, the instructions for being included in a Skype call are in the invitation.
Dear Ferry Riders,
2013 has come and so has our annual meeting to plan, set goals, and
get ready for the new Legislative Session. As you have probably read,
this will be an interesting session with the leadership of Senate in
flux, many new members in the House, and a new Governor taking office.
We will meeting in the downstairs chambers of the Norm Dicks
Government Center at 345 6th Street in Bremerton at Noon. Free
Parking is available on the Parking Lot just west of the building, on
the spots marked “City of Bremerton” on 5th Street, or in the City
Parking Garage on Washington Ave.
We will be discussing among other things, integration of the
long-term capital plan with the WSDOT Budget, a possible LNG
Conversion, a Bill on Accident/Incident Investigations, a 3rd or 4th
Olympic Class Boat, and a possible new Tariff Review Committee. Then
we will discuss our plan for moving ferry legislation through the
House and Senate. Anyone is free to leave at any time during the
proceedings, but everyone will be given an opportunity to have their
We will have water and coffee, and we’ll ‘pass the hat’ for a donation
for “Ferries are Marine Highways” Buttons. Feel free to support local
business like Cornerstone Coffee on 5th or Rimnan Thai and Larry &
Kristy’s Bakery just across the Manette Bridge before the meeting or
during a break..
For those wishing to Skype, please contact Kevin Matthew at
(360)473-5293 <email@example.com> by 3pm Friday to make
arrangements. This one may be different as it will be our first Skype
in the Chambers Downstairs.
We hope to see you there at Noon on Saturday to help save the ferries
for this and future generations.
Adam C. Brockus
Bremerton City Councilman
