“Coffee with a Commissioner” Program Starts March 23 in Burlington
Posted in General on March 14, 2012
Burlington – The Port of Skagit is starting a new program this month called “Coffee with a Commissioner” to make it easy for the public to meet informally with their port commissioners. District 2 Commissioner Steven Omdal will host the first session on Friday, March 23, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the Copia Coffee Lounge & Gallery, 1174 S. Burlington Blvd., in Burlington.
“Maintaining lines of communication with our port constituents is vital if we are to retain their support for port activities, including economic development, job creation and the responsible management of our facilities,” said Patsy Martin, executive director of the port. “This program will give the commissioners a chance to hear questions, comments and ideas about the Port of Skagit from citizens in their districts.”
“Coffee with a Commissioner” sessions will be scheduled quarterly, rotating among the three port commission districts. One commissioner will attend each session, and the port will provide coffee and pastries. Citizens have the option of reserving a 10-minute block of time with the commissioner, but every effort would be made to accommodate walk-ins and small groups as well.
