The Port's Mission is economic development - but locally, our values add to that - a sustainable, diverse, resilient local economy with family wage jobs. That's our shared vision for real Vitality.
Pioneers. Entrepreneurs. Innovators. Idea People. This is the talent we need to attract. The Port must support innovation and new ideas in every way possible. A culture of ideas will support us all.
Two guiding principles I bring to the table - Respect and Restore. For decades, even centuries, our culture has lacked a fundamental respect for the natural world and its power. An abiding respect leads to Restore- fixing our past mistakes.
