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

Moseley made the announcement Tuesday in a weekly report on ferry activities. He said when he took the position in 2008, the agency was in crisis in part because it had recently lost the motor vehicle excise tax as its main source of funding.

He said improvements to the ferry system during his tenure included adding new ferries, doing better maintenance and preservation of existing ferries, building a stronger financial base and communicating better with customers.

Moseley said in the statement he's pleased with the progress made but that it's time for the next person to build on the successes, correct mistakes and continue to move the system forward.
