Quotes

...more vessels out of service is a clear indicator that we must move quickly to complete construction of the three new 144 car ferries," Ranker said. "Even more to the point, however, is that this further underscores the critical need for the legislature to pass a transportation package that will improve our clearly struggling ferry system as well as other sorely needed infrastructure improvements throughout our state.”"
"What we came to experience was an amazing blending of community-wide passion, persistence, generosity and commitment,” said Susie Wampler, Ag Guild Board chair. “Though the odds initially seemed daunting, we strongly believed in the worthiness of the cause. We believed that if we built it, they would come. And come they did, with donations ranging from $5 to over $100,000 added to over 35,000 hours of volunteer time and the gift of many talents.”"
"Kelle is a competent and dedicated professional, and will serve the community well as treasurer and finance director,” Lacher said in a press release. “I am looking forward to working with Kelle and continuing our tradition of outstanding fiscal management.”"
"I'd say it's absolutely a great thing to do at minimal local expense" he said
