Port of Seattle vacancy is open to King County voters
January 29, 2013
Residents interested in trade, tourism and transportation can apply for a soon-to-open seat on the Port of Seattle Commission — a group of officials responsible for overseeing the Port of Seattle and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
Commissioner Gael Tarleton intends to resign from the commission Jan. 31 to serve in the state House of Representatives.
The position is open to U.S. and Washington residents eligible to vote in King County. Candidates must submit application materials by noon Feb. 1.
The half-time position pays $500 per month, includes benefits and requires some travel.
Tarleton’s successor is expected to serve until the November general election. The appointee can then run to fill the remaining years in Tarleton’s term through December 2015.
