'I hope I will never see a Subway in Friday Harbor'

Tourism is basic to our island economy. We are a destination because we are different from the mainland.

A Subway in Friday Harbor would be detrimental to our economy and also hurt the small restaurants owned by islanders. A mainland chain would assault the character and culture of our island town.

I hope I will never see a Subway in Friday Harbor.
