Dear Mr. Kuntz:

On behalf of WSDOT and the Transportation Commission, I would like to offer congratulations on the excellent outcome of your program to pursue federal funding support for the US 12 corridor project in the 2003 Transportation Appropriation earmark process.

This project is at the top of the list of transportation system needs in our state. We at WSDOT have appreciated the opportunity to work with you on the project and we look forward to continuing to do so, not only with you personally but with all the members of the coalition who are investing so much energy in the project and continue every day to build its support.

D.B.MD Signature

Transportation Commission
