The ferry system has been under-resourced and poorly managed for far too long, causing many of us to cancel doctor appointments, be late for work, and miss family gatherings. I will work with our regional partners to restore the ferry service our community needs. I will also make sure that our fleet is sustainable with hybrid-electric ferries that keep our air and water clean, and lower the burden on taxpayers by decreasing fuel costs. I am also committed to working with our local community to train and hire additional workers right here in Island County to safely run the boats.
