  1. Hopefully the next head of the ferry system won’t have a family/friend connection to the the Sect. of Transportation. This kind of fraternization has been rampant at WSF for many, many years. Also, they would do well to not hire from within, as the system is run by a ‘good-ol’-boy’ network, promoting those that don’t really have the experience/knowledge to do the job adequately, not to mention the pay raises that come with these ‘promotions’. I wish WSF well in their endeavors to find a good fit, some one that has the ability to think and speak for themselves, not be a puppet whose strings are pulled by the ‘good-ol’-boys’.

  2. why is there not more talk about how the state ferry system has been beleaguered by money and staff issues. Last September, Moseley apologized after 31 ferry trips were canceled over a single weekend. The ferries system also came under intense scrutiny in a KING 5 investigative series that questioned millions of dollars in potential waste and problems with accountability.
