Port commissioners should appoint the best person

March 25th, 2015 by Ken

When I voted for Sue Gunn for Port Commissioner in 2013 I was aware of her radical environmental views. But I voted for despite those views.

I voted for Gunn for three reasons.   She promised to make the marine terminal pay for itself.   She promised to wean the port off of taxpayers subsidies.   And, she wasn’t a member of the longshoreman’s union as her opponent was.  Her environmental views never entered into my decision.

Port Commissioners George Barner and Bill McGregor have to appoint someone to take her seat on the commission.

There are only two requirements.   The person selected must live in Gunn’s Third District – – and – – must be the best of the candidates seeking appointment.   There are no other criteria.
