    Recommendation from a Port of Bremerton taxpayer and voter. Amount of Port of Bremerton taxpayer funds to be spent in 2011 on supporting the following:

    Bremerton Marina, $0.00
    Parking Complex/retail Space downtown Bremerton, $0.00
    Support of new parking garage anywhere Bremerton, $0.00
    Support for condo’s and parking their ownwers $0.00

    But thats ok, when and if the Port of Bremerton ever realizes its grand plan to foster economic development and attract 1,000 jobs I am sure the City of Bremerton and all its advisory boards, committees, and groupies will want a slice of the pie. Oh, that’s right Bremerton annexed the area so it will reap the benefit. The taxpayers from the Port of Bremerton in the meantime just get nothing.

    Luckily, this is just a minor committee with little to offer many of the Port of Bremertons taxpayers and voters, but the thought does count. It is how Bremerton feels about many who have contributed, in many cases unwillingly to support the downtown concrete transit center it has become.
