Port of Seattle incumbents sail ahead
November 15, 2011
Port of Seattle Commission incumbents Bill Bryant and Gael Tarleton sailed to re-election Nov. 8. Bryant trounced challenger Dean Willard, a Sammamish resident, and Tarleton defeated Richard Pope in a lopsided contest to remain on the nonpartisan commission.
The race hinged on the economy and the environment, and the role the Port of Seattle plays in relation to each issue. The commission is the agency responsible for the Port of Seattle and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
