Speakers gave inspiring and thoughtful perspectives on Port issues and how Pam can be an agent for change.
Thursday, May 23, 2019 Pam Petranek had her District 1 Port Campaign Kick-off at the Pope Marine Building.
Pam’s message is extremely supportive of the Marine Trade Association’s concerns as she was once a moorage tenant herself and is currently employed in the marine trades.
The imminent replacement of the Executive Director and with the other two commission seats coming up in the near future, the entire Port administration will change. This is our chance to directly influence leadership change for the better.
The Kick-off event was a great success and the buzz about Pam's campaign continues. Contributions have been spent on printing, logo design, room reservations, and campaign buttons.
The following speakers each gave inspiring and thoughtful perspectives on Port issues and how Pam can be an agent for change.
