Dear friends, family, & supporters,

Thank you so much for your support in my role as your Port Commissioner during these past four years, 2020-2023. 

With your support we have accomplished much! Our Port has rebuilt the north jetty at Point Hudson with construction of the south jetty scheduled to begin this fall. We are replacing boat ramps in Quilcene and Gardiner. We are expanding our boat yard work areas. We are branching out in supporting local food production with the purchase of the Short family farm.  We have done all this and more while keeping public access to our waters affordable. 

Now I am seeking re-election for Port Commission, 2024-2027, to continue this important work to ensure a Port that is accountable, accessible and sustainable. So once again I am asking for your help.

Can you lend a hand by providing a donation and a formal endorsement? Let me know if you want a yard sign.

Please check out my website,

Together we can continue the work of providing a dynamic and resilient Port. Thank you so much and remember to vote for me November 7.

Pam Petranek

Phone: 360-316-9802
