“As a taxpayer and having to balance both personal and corporate budgets, I understand the importance of maintaining core Port services through careful financial management of the port’s resources.


Creating public access and recreational opportunities, growing jobs and achieving economic success by working jointly with other public and private entities provides the right approach to moving our port in a positive direction, particularly as we emerge from the pandemic."


  • Making prudent business decisions with taxpayer resources, while ensuring efficiencies through the use of technology and business process improvement strategies.



  • The Port of Everett needs to continue to be the top port for recreational boating on the Puget Sound while increasing opportunities for public access to our waterfront.


  • Our Port needs to be a leader on sustainable environmental practices setting an example for ports on the west coast and across the globe.


  • Working with other public and private agencies to leverage the ports job creation opportunities.
