Governor’s house cleaning | Letters

Open letter to Gov. Chris Gregoire:

Instead of more taxes, how about some house cleaning, starting with the Washington State Ferry System? In 1978: about workers on the docks and on the boats, 54 workers in WSF offices. Thirty-plus years later: about 700 workers on the docks and the boats, about 800 in WSF offices.

How did this happen? Better question, why? Please clean your house before you leave, governor, and let’s hold off adding more taxes before you go.

Kurt A. Lysen, Vashon Island
