Letter: Voting to keep David Day on as port commissioner


I am happy to support David Day in his bid to be elected to continue as a commissioner for the Port of Coupeville. This is a chance for our votes to benefit us right here in our own community.

I have attended the port meetings for years, and his ongoing participation both inside and outside of meetings shows that he has the best interests of our community at heart. He paid attention to public concerns when he served as the port executive director several years ago and he hears the public now.

David Day is a leader who listens.

The Coupeville Wharf has been in need of restoration for years, and I believe that it is Day’s persistence that has finally got the ball rolling on the application for and receiving of grants to aid in the financing of the first wharf project, which is stabilization. Now is a critical time for the Coupeville Wharf. As a commissioner, David Day will continue to focus his efforts to preserve this iconic symbol of our history.

His professional and volunteer experience is invaluable to our community and will continue when he is elected to the board. He knows where the money comes from and where it goes. Transparency and fiscal responsibility mark his character as a public servant and we are very fortunate that he is continuing to offer his services to us as a Port of Coupeville Commissioner.

Please vote for David Day for Port of Coupeville commissioner. To see his qualifications listed, visit the November election voters pamphlet, which can be found at myvote.wa.gov.
