Port of Seattle: Hearing on Port Commission's misuse of public resources

Enforcement Hearing Notice

Remember back to October 2013, when I alleged that millions of public dollars were being funneled into incumbents' campaigns for port commissioner? Since then, all four candidates involved won by a landslide.

On September 25, 2014, the Public Disclosure Commission will be holding a hearing to look into the alleged violations by Tom Albro, John Creighton, Courtney Gregoire, and Stephanie Bowman.

Port of Seattle: Millions of public dollars funneled into incumbents' campaigns

If there is one thing our Port Commissioners are good at, it is on doing things that benefit themselves. If you'll remember back to March, the port commissioners gave themselves a massive pay raise. Well it doesn't stop there! Now they have given themselves $2.5 million dollars worth of advertising at the Sea-Tac airport! For comparison, in the most expensive commission campaign ever, Bill Bryant spent $365,680.86 to get himself re-elected.
