South Whidbey port commissioner's appointment extended two weeks
Commissioners at the Port of South Whidbey plan to appoint a representative for Position 2 during a special meeting tentatively scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25.
Commissioners Curt Gordon and Dennis Gregoire met and interviewed the sole candidate for the position during a regular meeting Tuesday, Feb. 11.
The candidate, Ed Halloran, submitted his application for the position on Feb. 6.
Halloran, a 10-year resident of Langley, reviewed his work experience and community involvement with the commissioners.
He said his vision as a commissioner would be to make port facilities community-friendly.
Commissioners decided to wait two more weeks for any remaining applications that may be received. Any additional applicants should submit their materials by Friday, Feb. 21, prior to the meeting, though resumes will be accepted up to the Feb. 25 meeting.
Commissioners have until April 14, or 90 days from the resignation, to fill the position previously held by Chris Jerome.
The term will continue from the appointment in February through the next regular port election in November 2015.
Submissions including a letter of interest and statement of qualifications can be sent by mail to Port of South Whidbey, P.O. Box 872, Freeland, WA 98249, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by fax to 360-331-5414, or in person at 1804 Scott Road, Suite 101, Freeland.
