With a sequence of three, loud, clear "ayes" votes, Port of Everett commissioners agreed to sell 143 acres of property for $43.5 million to the U.S. Navy for an aircraft carrier base. The vote ended six months of controversial negotiations and committed the port to holding the land for sale to navy until next March 31.
