As The Herald said in its endorsement of Port Commissioner Bruce Fingarson, “the choice comes down to experience.” Bruce’s 36 years of supply chain management at Boeing brings to the Port an understanding of contracting with China, Japan, Korea and domestic companies. These countries and domestic companies rely on our Port’s international seaport, which supports our economy and thousands of jobs in our area.
Since being appointed Port Commissioner in November, 2017, Bruce has established a solid reputation and respect for his approach to the development of the Port’s assets. Commissioner Fingarson believes in a balanced waterfront with more public access and opportunities, along with economic development for new family wage jobs. This includes support of Waterfront Place with new retail, apartments, hotel complexes and maintaining excellent facilities for boaters who utilize the port. Bruce is also strongly supportive of our seaport terminal and wharf extension capital projects to accommodate larger cargo vessels.
In addition, Fingarson is a dedicated advocate for environmental stewardship of the Port’s properties as in the cleaning up of the old contaminated Weyerhaeuser site resulting in a new business park and 700 new jobs.
Everett Port Commissioners are nonpartisan. Bruce will not be swayed by outside influence. His decisions will always be in the best interest of the citizens of Everett. We strongly encourage our community to retain Bruce Fingarson as District 1 Port Commissioner.
