Poulsbo Mayor Becky Erickson knows gridlock, and just not the political kind. Before she was mayor, she was chief financial officer of the Bainbridge Graduate Institute and a commuter. During rush hour “it could take 45 minutes to get across the island,” she said.

Their work, and patience, are paying off.
