Port of Seattle vacancy is open to King County voters

January 29, 2013

By Staff

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.

    Mr. Albro talked about the open commissioner seat on a radio talk show on January 9th, 2013 and that is why I decided to run for the open seat on the Commission. My name is Janet Christensen OBrien and I am a filmmaker, TV Producer with a show called Public Interest Issues Show and a listing on IMDB with films like “Introduce You” and Showcase Begins. I have also been self employed for the last thirty Three years as owner and operator of a small business called, “Seattle Detective Bureau” I can be reached for comments and questions at 206 624 9624. I am having a party at the Silver Cloud hotel in the bar on 2/5/13 from 3-6 pm and the Public is invited to come and meet me. THanks for your time and considerations. I am very interested in serving on this open seat for Port of Seattle Commissioner.
