Politicians and interested parties from around the Sound are brown bagging it at Bremerton's Norm Dicks Government Center today at a ferry summit to talk about ways to right the system that connects their communities. Full agenda below.
State Rep. Sherry Appleton, of the 23rd District, told me during a break in the summit that among the issues being discussed was how to deal with "the cost of ferries. The fares are escalating so that families are priced out of them. When ferries get into downtown Seattle where the traffic goes; passenger only ferries, what are we going to do with those?"
