New Everett Commissioner

By Karen Robes Meeks

Retired supply chain manager Bruce Fingarson will fill the Port of Everett Commission District 1 seat vacated by Troy McClelland, who stepped down after relocating to Massachusetts for a job assignment.

A Washington State University graduate who earned his degree in Business Administration, Fingarson worked in Everett in supplier management for The Boeing Co. for 36 years. He also has strong ties to the city. His family has made Everett their home since the 1920s when his grandparents settled there.

“We were fortunate to have a great group of outstanding candidates,” Port Commissioner Glen Bachman said. “We look forward to having Commissioner Fingarson join the Port team.”

Fingarson’s appointment will last until the next regular port election in 2019.
