A new article, Secret Deals – Stinkier and Stinkier, appeared this morning on nwcitizen.com. In it, Tip Johnson raises some points that may be relevant to the Lummi Nation-Whatcom County Gooseberry Pt dock lease negotiations, and the costs to county taxpayers and ferry users from whatever deal eventually emerges.
Editorial Note: Tip “No, I’m not an islander” Johnson has repeatedly pointed out that the outcome of the ferry dock lease negotiations, like other Whatcom County Ferry (bridge) system decisions, are relevant to all rural County taxpayers, not just those who live or own property on Lummi Island or use the ferry. So he, like all County taxpayers, has a real stake in what happens. Wynne
