Jim Jorgensen of Blaine has announced he will seek a third four-year term on the three-member Port of Bellingham commission.
Here is his press release:
Blaine resident Jim Jorgensen announced today that he will be seeking re-election as District Three Commissioner for the Port of Bellingham. Jim has served as a commissioner for 8 years and looks forward to the opportunity to continue representing his constituents in this capacity.
During these past two terms, Jorgensen has been deeply involved in the major decisions the Port has made affecting the development of the former Georgia-Pacific waterfront site and the Bellingham International Airport. He wants to continue working with the Port as these projects go forward, offering improved public access now and laying the foundation for future expansion.
Jim is especially dedicated to fostering partnerships between the Port and the smaller Whatcom County cities. “It’s important for us as commissioners to make personal contacts at community gatherings throughout the county,” Jorgensen said. “We need to keep the public informed and at the same time tap into the concerns and ideas that the community has to offer,” he continued.
As a long time resident of Whatcom County, and after a 40 year career as a teacher and a local businessman, Jim Jorgensen seeks to continue serving his community as District Three Commissioner for the Port of Bellingham.
