Ferry Frustrations

It was refreshing to read Bremerton Mayor Cary Bozeman's "My Turn" article in the Kitsap Sun, lambasting the ferry system and the legislature for allowing the problem to reach the massive proportions it has.

I believe Mayor Bozeman has done the right thing by taking the bull by the horns and focusing public attention to what has been a festering problem for as long as most people who have lived here any length of time can remember.

The tail has wagged the dog for far too long. It's way past time the Ferry System became responsive to the people it "serves" rather than have the people paying the freight be subject to the whims of the massive mismanagement that has plagued the system for more than a generation.

If the governor and the legislature want to prove to voters they actually understand the term "leadership," they'll stand up to the bloated, unelected bureaucracy and overpaid featherbedders, taking action to run the system like a business — not the taxpayer funded gravy train it's been for our entire lifetime.
