Open Letter to Rep. Ortiz: Southeast Ferry Survey

By A.M. Johnson


April 26, 2023

Representative Ortiz,

In receipt of the recent survey, you have asked input for.... well and good, may I suggest an additional survey, one that ask Southeast residents which southern terminal they prefer for the Alaska Ferry, Bellingham or Prince Rupert? 

The question should be posed in the vein of the system being for the Alaska Residents desiring to access a economical road connection where personal decisions on cost is reasonable. Bellingham surely is not in any form, economical for the average Alaska resident.

I could go on with comments, but you get the drift, let the peasants decide if there is to be a ferry connection affordable or do we continue to eat cake.
