Head of WSF to visit Lopez for Town Hall – August 11 at 4 p.m.

The following reminder comes from John Whetten, our representative on the local Ferry Advisory Committee:

Lynne Griffith, head of Washington State Ferries, will be visiting Lopez Island on Thursday afternoon, August 11.  She will conduct a “Town Hall”-type meeting at the Lopez Community Center from 4-5:30pm.

The head of ferries doesn’t visit the islands very often.  This is a chance for you to hear what is going on with our ferry system, to impress upon her the importance of ferries to our economy (and our survival!), and to ask questions relative to service, fares, reservations, and anything else relative to ferries.

Please attend if you can.  And, please spread this message to others.

    Hope a summary of the major issues raised and her responses will be posted as soon as possible after the meeting so that those on other islands can know what has been covered, what needs more input, etc.

      There are meetings on all four islands, beginning today on Orcas. The Lopez meeting is the last one. We’ll try to get a summary posted from that meeting. If anyone on San Juan, Orcas, or Shaw volunteers to take notes, we may be able to post those as well.
