Washington State Ferries director resigns

SEATTLE — Washington State Ferries Director David Moseley announced his resignation, effective April 15.

The announcement came March 18 in Moseley’s weekly report posted on the WSF website.

He was selected as director in 2008.

In his statement, Moseley said WSF was in crisis in part because it had recently lost the motor vehicle excise tax as its main source of funding. He also noted improvements during his time as director such as building a stronger financial base, replacing and adding new ferries, better maintenance and preservation of existing ferries and communicating better with customers.

Secretary of Transportation Lynn Peterson said in a statement that under Moseley’s tenure, WSF has reached out to its customers with more than 450 meetings and provided weekly ferry activities emails and implemented new online tools to help customers better plan their travel.

Peterson said the Washington State Department of Transportation will begin a national search for a candidate to replace Moseley.
