More Ferry Talk
And given our community's pressing needs, I'm not trying to minimize the additional $10 million. It's a big number, a lot of money that could underwrite many important programs.
Having covered economic issues as a subject for almost 11 years now, however, I would argue that what the Ferry Corp. is doing is no different than any start-up business. It is trying to stay alive so it can continue searching for an approach and structure that works. Often that requires more capital. Behind that request for more money is a company -- Bay Ferries -- that's been in business a long time.
There will be plenty of time to second-guess and criticize and hold people accountable if the ship fails. But let's see how this new plan unfolds.
