Ok, we are now going on 3 1/2 months with no Airport Shuttle
service. Does anyone in this town really care about this service?
After many letters were written back in January, now we have
total silence. The only way to get local government in Ketchikan
to act is to keep calling and writing letters. Local cabs want
$70.00 to take you over to the airport from your home.
They really could care less
that so many need this service. For a little town we sure do
little to help our elderly and our folks with disabilities that
are stuck between a rock and a hard place. For once I'd like
to see local government get off their behinds and settle this
problem. Not everyone can afford to park at the airport. Not
everyone has a family member to drive them over and back. We
are the First City in Alaska to the outside world. Why can't
we start acting like it. I know it's all about money ,but everything
in this town is all about money. Meanwhile nothing is getting
done, or at least no one seems to know anything.
Does anyone in local government care? I'd sure like to have that
question answered. And I'd sure like to see more folks in this
town get involved.
After all you live here. Speak up.
