My name is Tony Larson and I’ve recently been elected to the Whatcom County Council. I’d like to thank those of you who supported me and assure those of you who did not that I intend to listen to the concerns of all Whatcom County residents.
A public hearing regarding the Lummi Island Ferry fare proposal will likely take place in the County Council Chambers on Tuesday, Nov. 23. On that same day the election will be certified and because the Council Seat formally occupied by Bob Kelly and Ward Nelson was part of a special election, I will be sworn into office and will be sitting on the Council that evening.
Between now and then, I have scheduled meetings with the administration and others and will be looking at data and all the Ferry fare proposals and listening to comments from the community so I can fully understand the issues and likely consequences of any decision I may be asked to make. I take my responsibility as a Council Member very seriously and look forward to any feedback you may want to offer on this or any issue facing Whatcom County.
Please feel free to pass this email on to anyone you know who may be interested. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to hearing from you and perhaps meeting you sometime in the future.
