Wolfe to seek second term as port commissioner



Port of Vancouver Commissioner Brian Wolfe said Tuesday he will run for a second six-year term.

As Clark County struggles with prolonged unemployment, the port has been focused on building “infrastructure that results in increased private sector investment” in the community, Wolfe said in a news release. Wolfe touted the port’s accomplishments in the last five years, including creating hundreds of construction jobs and helping deepen the Columbia River channel to handle larger cargo vessels.

“The commission has not taken the 1 percent tax increase allowed by law for the last two years because we believe we can do what we need to do without more taxes,” he said.

On the port’s three-member board, Wolfe represents District 1, covering east Vancouver and the Orchards area.
