As of late, Ketchikan Alaska Marine Highway System shipboard personnel have been bounced from pillar to post. Bartlett was sold on EBay. How insulting was that? The Aurora is going to be transferred to Prince Williams Sound, disrupting many families here in Ketchikan. Now operations is going to lay up the Taku this summer for whatever reason. This is putting more stress on Ketchikan shipboard personnel. Those people are now looking for other jobs on other ships - more disruption, all in the name of saving money.
Now Juneau's AHMS Operation is asked to bite some of the "saving money" disruption bullet. Save money wherever the governor needs to. I say, "What has been good for the goosing is now good for the gandering."
