Port of Port Angeles releases commission candidate list

PORT ANGELES — The Port of Port Angeles this morning identified the seven candidates for the seat vacated by Port Angeles-area District 2 Commissioner Jim Hallett, who resigned.

They are Brent Berry, Steven Burke, James Haguewood, Randall Johnson, Thomas Pope, Melvin Rudin and David Sellars.

Port Commissioners Colleen McAleer and Connie Beauvais will interview the candidates for up to 45 minutes each in a meeting that begins at 9 a.m. March 4 in the port commission meeting room in the administrative building at 338 W. First St.

Candidate questionnaires and conflict-of-interest disclosure statements are at http://tinyurl.com/PDN-portapplicants.

Candidate occupations and work histories are not included in the information the port released this morning.

The port has refused to fulfill a Peninsula Daily News public records request for the candidates’ full applications, citing an exemption that applies to public employees.

The elected position of port commissioner pays up to $13,992 annually and offers medical, dental, vision, long-term disability and life insurance coverage.

The six-year term expires in 2017.
