Democracy Is Too Important To Leave To The Politicians
Do Your Civic Duty By Getting Informed and Getting Involved

If you say: " I'm too busy just trying to keep it together to get involved, consider that perhaps, if you were more involved you might not be having so much trouble keeping it together "!

  1. that last item !
    does that mean they have money now, and it might go ahead ?

  2. That is what I would take from the purpose of the presentation to the public. I don't know how the recent decision to sign onto the RFP that the Port Authority has put out for a ferry service, factors into the mix.

  3. It's worse than pulling teeth, this ferry business
