Port Commissioner Jeff Davis has pushed to revitalize a neglected marine terminal that had three ship calls in 2009, and is on track to have 36 this year. He voted to lower Farmers Market vendors’ costs. He is committed to the cleanup of legacy pollution in Budd Inlet and the South Sound. The port has dredged contaminated sediment from the shipping berths, increasing shipping and environmental clean up. He supported the rehabilitation of the Mission Creek estuary, which has created additional wildlife habitat.
The port has purchased the old state Fish and Wildlife property, adding additional parking in the market district that is larger, safer and closer to the market than the former Rants overflow lot.
The Swantown boat works is scheduled to have the haul-out facility dredged, which will keep one of the most environmentally friendly boat works in Puget Sound viable and profitable. Do you want a port commissioner with the experience and knowledge to keep moving into the 21st century, or do you want a port commissioner who has attended only one commission meeting and lacks the experience and knowledge to move the port forward?
