A larger Port Commission could handle an absence

I attended the recent Olympia Port Commission meeting, urging compassion in allowing then-commissioner Sue Gunn time to recover. Mr. McGregor’s concern was elsewhere, with the precarious position of the commission if either he or Mr. Barner were also incapacitated. So far, no one I know of has suggested that the board simply amend its bylaws to provide for a five member board. As an afterthought, the commission would be doing the public a favor if it published brief biographical sketches of the commissioners.
