I found Ilsa Rimer’s letter to the editor published July 14 to be misleading — a lot misleading.
Seems that she (who has attended two port meetings) is of the opinion that Commissioner Jeff Davis has not been attending meetings. I know for a fact that he has only missed a handful of meetings in his four years on the commission. The last two were due to a planned extended vacation (same two Rimer attended).
Davis knows and understands port business, unlike a candidate who runs on one or two issues. Sue Gunn, his opponent, has never attended a port commission meeting as far as I know. So who is spending their time at port meetings to understand port ventures?
I support Davis for another four years. Between commissioners Davis, Bill McGregor and George Barner, the port is actually moving ahead on many fronts, including environmental stewardship.
Let’s keep the port moving and not clog it up with a candidate who wants to close down the gains that have been made.
