Your Emails Pay Off!

Last night I received a thank you note from Adam Brockus of the Ferry Community Partnership. A state representative tells him the emails sent over this past weekend did make a difference in legislators’ level of awareness and concern about the proposed transportation package. I am posting his note below for you to see.

Also, don’t forget about tomorrow’s ferry related meetings in Friday Harbor running pretty much from 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Here’s our recent post with all the details. In addition, our County Council is discussing changes in language in the County Comprehensive Plan, Transportation Element related to ferry reservations at their June 17th meeting. The agenda isn’t yet posted online.

Adam’s note:

Ferry Riders,

I talked to Rep. Seaquist and he thanks the FCP for putting out the
e-mails. He says we have moved up the Transportation Package in the

Unfortunately with the Senate going nowhere on the budget, about
everyone is resigned to another special session. Expect the Governor
to read the Legislature the Riot Act tomorrow morning as he schedules
the next special session. They will try to push the budget to pass
before the end of the fiscal year, June 30. Keep an eye and an ear
out for the Start of the next special session.

Thank You for helping us to fix the ferries.

-Adam Brockus
