Commissioner Named for Grays Harbor

By Karen Robes Meeks

Tom Quigg will fill the Port of Grays Harbor’s District 2 Commission seat, the port has announced.

Quigg was selected by Commissioners Stan Pinnick and Phil Papac to take over the seat left vacant by Commissioner Jack Thompson, who passed away in October.

“We appreciate all of the highly qualified candidates that applied and truly value their interest in the Port and their enthusiasm and commitment to the future of Grays Harbor,” stated Commission President Stan Pinnick. “We look forward to welcoming Mr. Quigg to the Board and have confidence his business experience, knowledge and dedication will serve the Port and our community well.”

A lifelong Grays Harbor resident, Quigg brings marine construction and real estate experience to the role. He is a commercial and industrial real estate broker with Windermere Real Estate in Aberdeen, Wash., a founding member of the Grays Harbor Shipping Club and a board member of the Grays Harbor Community Foundation.

Quigg will be sworn in on Dec. 11 and will serve until November 2019, when he and others may seek to run for a six-year term on the commission.
