What went wrong with Whidbey’s ferry?

Editor,

What is the problem with the ferry system? Less than one week after a three-week maintenance for the Tokitae we have the boat down for “necessary repairs” on Christmas Eve. Why?

Ask Gov. Jay Inslee why his union cronies cannot find these things that are needing repair while at the facility? Is the transportation system populated with too many incompetents who hold large salaries and keep “we the people” hostage while nothing gets done to improve service, highways, etc?

Highways 525 and 20 need serious repairs and upgrading. Where and when will that happen? Something stinks in Olympia and it needs correcting now. A new governor would have been a place to begin.
