In a special Commission meeting held last week, Port of Edmonds attorney Brad Cattle administered the oath of office to newly elected Commissioner Angela Harris and re-elected Commissioners Bruce Faires and Steve Johnston.

Harris, who defeated incumbent Fred Gouge, brings extensive business expertise to her new role as a Port commissioner for District 1, having owned and operated a consulting firm prior to starting her role as a senior business program manager at Microsoft.

“I am honored to serve Edmonds and Woodway as Port commissioner and thank the many supporters who helped throughout the campaign,” she said.

This will be the fifth term for incumbent Commissioner Bruce Faires, who represents District 3. Commissioner Steve Johnston (at-large) will be starting his first full four-year term, having been appointed as Port commissioner in 2016.

The Port of Edmonds operates a marina and various commercial properties in downtown Edmonds and provides the only public boating access in the 30-mile stretch between Seattle’s Shilshole Bay and the Port of Everett.

The Port is governed by a five-member board of commissioners, including David Preston and Jim Orvis. Port District voters elect commissioners for four-year terms.
