Port of Everett Commissioner David Simpson has announced his intention to run for re-election in 2021 to retain his District 1 position.

“Going into my second year I am honored to serve as your District 1 representative on the Port of Everett Commission,” Simpson said. “Economic uncertainty and the Covid-19 pandemic have affected all 75 ports in Washington State, impacting our region, our community and local economy”.

The Port’s District 1 covers the northern part of Everett, all of Hat Island and part of the Tulalip reservation. Simpson was elected in 2019 to complete an unexpired term. He will run for a full six-year term in 2021.

Commissioner Simpson has an extensive record of community service, including as an Everett City Council member, a Washington State Representative for the 38th Legislative District, and a member of the Snohomish County Charter Review Commission representing County Council District 2. He is a proud resident of Everett’s Delta Neighborhood.

“There is much more work to be done,” Simpson said. “The next six years will be critical times for our Port. I want to retain my position on the Port Commission to provide leadership to see the completion of ongoing Economic Development Port projects, the South Seaport Terminal Development, the Norton Cargo Terminal Site Development (the former Kimberly-Clark Site), the Waterfront Place Central Development and the Bay Wood Site Development.”

Once completed, Commissioner Simpson said, these projects will provide community and regional benefits, create family wage jobs, generate revenue, provide environmental and critical habitat protection, support public access, help sustain the local economy and position the Port for economic development and Covid-19 pandemic recovery.

“I would appreciate your support of my campaign to retain my Port of Everett Commissioner District 1 position,” he said.
