Porter for port | Letter

There’s an old adage about Letters to the Editor; “be quick, be concise, and then be quiet”!  We’ll try!

We write in enthusiastic support of Bob Porter for Commissioner, Port of Lopez, position 3.  He is our choice because we appreciate Bob’s leadership style, his ability to work with a team and his willing response to the many Lopezians who’ve urged him to return to the Port Commission!  If elected, Bob will once again serve all of us with distinction.

Bob has a long and sterling record as a community volunteer and activist, and has always represented  the diverse Lopez community fairly, impartially and with integrity.  Bob is a tireless worker and demonstrates sensitivity to the major issues of safety and security being primary goals for the Port of Lopez. He is always approachable and responds to every community member with courtesy and respect.

Bob is a recipient of the Washington Public Ports Association Award for significant and meaningful contributions to the success of the Washington Port Industry and he wrote the Washington Department of Transportation Aircraft Division Manual of Airport Safety and Security.  The proceeds of that project were assigned to the Port of Lopez.

Without hesitation we endorse Bob Porter’s election as Commissioner-Port of Lopez, Position 3. We urge you to give him your most throughtful consideration and join us in voting for Bob.

Bob and Jan Sundquist
