To Kayak Public Transit:

I would like to say thank you to everyone who put together the million rider promotion. To have been selected as THE millionth rider of Kayak was an enjoyable experience that I will always remember.

Thank you also to my drivers, who get me safely to work and back home every day — Rusty, Mark and Leonard of the Walla Walla Whistler, Phil on the Mission Metro and Roger on the La Grande Arrow. Thanks to Andrea Hall and Susan Johnson at the Planning Office, who organized the promotion and surprised me with the presentation on that sunny Friday at the transit hub. Thanks also to Claudette, whose smiling face greeted me and all the other riders during the promotion. I’m sure that there are many people behind the scenes that I have not met and to those of you I also wish to express my appreciation. Your combined hard work and generosity have produced a fun promotion and a successful Kayak organization. Thanks a million!

I wish continued success to Kayak and you can be sure that I will always be your #1 (millionth) fan!

“People rock, so Kayak rolls!”

Sincerely, Jim Youngman
