U.S. Navy veteran and retired Boeing manufacturing engineer David Simpson is again serving as a Port of Everett commissioner, now representing Port District 1 for a full six years. He was first elected in 2019 to serve the two-year balance of former Port Commissioner Troy McClelland’s six-year term.

Simpson, who was officially sworn into office in a virtual ceremony Wednesday, won re-election in November to serve constituents in parts of the north Everett waterfront and east to the Snohomish River.

“I am honored to continue my work on behalf of the citizens of Port District 1 as their commissioner, providing economic development investments leadership, creating jobs, keeping our port competitive and sustaining the port’s commitment to environmental stewardship as our region moves through the pandemic and economic recovery,” Simpson said.

Simpson, who has been on the commission since 2019, previously served as a state representative and Everett City Councilman, as well as the Everett Council of Neighborhoods, Puget Sound Regional Council Freight Advisory Committee and the Snohomish County Committee Improved Transportation Committee.
