Everett Commission Deadline

By Karen Robes Meeks

Those interested in serving on the Port of Everett Commission have until 5 p.m. on October 16 to apply for the District 1 vacancy left by Troy McClelland, who resigned in August following a job relocation to Massachusetts.

Applicants must provide a completed application, proof of residency from the Snohomish County Auditor’s office and proof of voter registration. District 1 includes parts of the waterfront area in North Everett, and east to the Snohomish River.

The commission will gather for a special meeting on October 24 to review applicants’ qualifications and select candidates for interviews scheduled for October 30.

On November 2, the commission will weigh the merits of the candidates in a public session and vote on the District 1 position appointment. The assignment will last until the next regular port election in 2019.
