I am writing a letter of support for my friend Pam Petranek. Pam is running for the port commissioner.
I often encounter Pam while riding my bicycle around Port Townsend. If you are a long time resident of Port Townsend you have doubtless seen Pam riding her heavy duty cargo bike with the salmon trailer towed behind, on her way to the Saturday Market.
I have heard Pam address the port commission several times over the past ten years. She is always well organized and has presented issues that are important to the Port. Pam is very aware of the connection between the success of the many marine trades enterprises that conduct business in the port. The marine trades provide many living wage jobs in our community.
Pam’s presentations to the port commissioners have always been respectful, positive and fact based.
Pam is focused on transparency – informed public debate, financial accountability , affordable community access and she has a passion for environmental stewardship.
Pam will make an excellent port commissioner. Please give her your support.
