FOR PORT COMMISSIONER, DISTRICT 5
The Port is an economic engine for our community which has several living wage jobs. Beyond the marine terminal and airport, there are several properties that the Port controls in our community. What the Port requires is a continual update of its strategic plan, services and business model that reflects its growing community. Board service is about our neighbors feeling heard on dynamic issues that affect them and t heir community. While on the Lacey Parks Board, my goal was to ensure that everyone felt heard.
Not always listened to. But heard. Diplomacy is about no one feeling that they got 100% of what they wanted, but no one feels that they lost out completely. The Port's issues over the past few decades have been overall a bad operations culture along with personnel changes, lack of warehouse space for larger cargo, and concerns by taxpayers over the financial burden that the Port puts on their households.
If elected, I plan to examine solutions to these challenges with effective benchmarks.
