The three finalists for the position of Executive Director of the Port of Bellingham have all withdrawn their names from consideration. Of the original five finalists, two withdrew their names earlier in the summer. The Port is now starting over in their search for an executive.
As of this afternoon, I have left phone messages with Port officials and candidates and can only wait for a possible phone call back. The Port has posted information confirming this development. Nothing on the Herald website.
The executive position has now been vacant for over a year. Ironically, the Port released their latest version of the waterfront master plan just yesterday - with no leader to steer the process.
More information when we learn more.
