Should the Port commission expand from three members to five? | TalkBack

We’ve yet to test the waters with this doozy appearing on local ballots. Voters will decide if the Port of Bellingham commission moves forward with five elected members instead of three.

Here’s some past coverage of the ballot measure:

Port commission approves ballot resolution on expansion, but won’t let voters decide at-large question

Port splits commission expansion measure into two pieces, commissioners to vote June 19

Ballot measure to expand Port of Bellingham commission faces legal doubts

And here’s a link to a PDF version of the local voters’ pamphlet from the Whatcom County Auditor’s website. Arguments for and against the expansion (Port of Bellingham Proposition No. 1) are on page 95. The full text of the proposition is on page 99.

So, what do you think?
