Newest Everett Commissioner

Port of Everett’s newest commissioner, District 1 Port Commissioner-Elect David Simpson, was sworn in last week, taking over for former District 1 Port Commissioner Bruce Fingarson.

US Navy veteran Simpson comes to the port with more than 45 years of experience in the public and private sectors, including 30 years in the aviation industry – 24 years in manufacturing engineering for The Boeing Co. and six years as an aviation mechanic for the navy.

His public service career includes the Washington State House of Representatives 38th District, Everett City Council, City of Everett Planning Commission, Snohomish County Charter Review Commission, and the City of Everett’s Committee for Housing and Community Development.

“I am looking forward to working for the citizens of District 1 and ensuring the Port of Everett remains a competitive leader in the region,” Simpson said.
