After winning re-election in November, David Simpson was sworn in for a full term as Port of Everett Commissioner for District 1. Here’s the release out Wednesday afternoon from the Port.

Today, in a virtual ceremony, Port of Everett Commis­sioner-elect David Simpson was officially sworn into service to continue in his post representing citizens in the Port District 1 seat.

Simpson was re-elected in November to serve a six-year term.

“I am honored to continue my work on behalf of the citizens of Port District 1 as their commissioner, providing economic development investments leadership, creating jobs, keeping our Port competitive and sustaining the Port’s commitment to environmental stewardship as our region moves through the pandemic and economic recovery,” Simpson said.

Simpson, a U.S. Navy veteran and retired Boeing manufacturing engineer, has served on the Port of Everett Commission since 2019. He has a long and vast history of public service including that of a State Representative and Everett City Council member prior to being elected to the Port Commission.

In addition to his role as Port Commissioner, Simpson serves on the Everett Council of Neighborhoods, Puget Sound Regional Council Freight Advisory Committee, and the Snohomish County Committee Improved Transportation Committee.

He is a strong advocate for the community, economy and environment.

The Port of Everett is governed by a three-member commission. Commissioners are elected to six-year terms and rotate yearly between the roles of president, vice president and secretary.

District 1 encompasses portions of the waterfront area in north Everett, and east to the Snohomish River.
